------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Debian Project http://www.debian.org/ Updated Debian 6.0: 6.0.6 released email@example.com September 29th, 2012 http://www.debian.org/News/2012/20120929 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Debian project is pleased to announce the sixth update of its stable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename "squeeze"). This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories were already published separately and are referenced where available. Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian 6.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 6.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date packages to be updated. Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update. New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages will be available soon at the regular locations. Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at: <http://www.debian.org/mirror/list> Miscellaneous Bugfixes ---------------------- This stable update adds a few important corrections to the following packages: Package Reason alpine Fix crash in embedded UW-IMAP copy apache2 mod_negotiation - fix CVE-2012-2687; mod_cache - don't cache partial connections; read timeouts should result in a 408 automake1.10 Fix CVE-2012-3386 automake1.11 Fix CVE-2012-3386 automake1.7 Fix CVE-2012-3386 automake1.9 Fix CVE-2012-3386 base-files Update /etc/debian_version for the point release checkgmail Fix GMail authentication issues clamav New upstream release debian-archive-keyring Add wheezy stable and archive signing keys dpkg Ensure a reliable unpack on SELinux systems eglibc Really enable patches/any/cvs-dlopen-tls.diff; fix FORTIFY_SOURCE format string protection bypass; fix a DoS in RPC implementation emesene Update contact end-point to local-bay.contacts.msn.com geshi Fix 'Local File Inclusion Vulnerability in contrib script' gosa Security fix (missing escaping) ia32-libs Update packages libconfig-inifiles-perl Fix insecure temporary file use libgc Check for integer overflow in internal malloc and calloc routines libmtp Fix device flags for some devices; add support for new devices libxslt Fix CVE-2011-1202, CVE-2011-3970, CVE-2012-2825 links2 Security fixes linux-2.6 DRM fixes; leap second fix; security fixes; various driver fixes linux-kernel-di-amd64-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-armel-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-i386-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-ia64-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-mips-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-mipsel-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-powerpc-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-s390-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 linux-kernel-di-sparc-2.6 Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.32-46 lockfile-progs Ensure the correct PID is used when creating lockfiles mysql-mmm Add dependency on libpath-class-perl network-manager Stop allowing ad-hoc WPA networks to be created; kernel bugs mean they get created as open networks nss-pam-ldapd Support larger gecos values; reliability fixes nvidia-graphics-drivers Fix information leak in the kernel module; fix arbitrary memory access vulnerability; fix local privilege escalation through VGA window manipulation nvidia-graphics-modules Rebuild against 195.36.31-6squeeze1 kernel modules for security fixes; rebuild to fix CVE-2012-4225 php-memcached Fix session.gc_maxlifetime handling plymouth Fix the init script to not fail when the package is removed policyd-weight Remove rfc-ignorant.org RBLs (due to upcoming shutdown) and rbl.ipv6-world.net postgresql-common Do not remove the PID file after SIGKILLing the postmaster in the last-ditch powertop Fix segfault on newer kernels with large config files publican Add dependency and build-dependency on libio-string-perl rstatd Support Linux 3.x kernels spip Fix base name disclosure; security fixes tor New upstream; fix TLS 1.1/1.2 renegotiation with openssl 1.0.1; fix potential DOS; fix two crashes and an information disclosure issue ttb Add dependency on python-glade2 vte Fix a memory exhaustion vulnerability wims Fix installation problem wireshark Fix crashes in ANSI A detector and pcap / pcap-ng parsers xserver-xorg-video-intel UXA/glyphs: fall back instead of crashing on large strings yaws Fix RNG strength; fix mail config loading Security Updates ---------------- This revision adds the following security updates to the stable release.
