[SECURITY] [DLA 1390-1] procps security update

Package        : procps
Version        : 1:
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1122 CVE-2018-1123 CVE-2018-1124 CVE-2018-1125 
Debian Bug     : #899170

The Qualys Research Labs discovered multiple vulnerabilities in procps,
a set of command line and full screen utilities for browsing procfs. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


    top read its configuration from the current working directory if no
    $HOME was configured. If top were started from a directory writable
    by the attacker (such as /tmp) this could result in local privilege


    Denial of service against the ps invocation of another user.


    An integer overflow in the file2strvec() function of libprocps could
    result in local privilege escalation.


    A stack-based buffer overflow in pgrep could result in denial
    of service for a user using pgrep for inspecting a specially
    crafted process.


    Incorrect integer size parameters used in wrappers for standard C
    allocators could cause integer truncation and lead to integer
    overflow issues.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your procps packages.

The Debian LTS team would like to thank Abhijith PA for preparing this update.
