Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Linux Terminal Server Project: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200805-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 09, 2008
Bug(s): #215699
ID: 200805-07

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in components shipped with
LTSP which allow remote attackers to compromise terminal clients.


Background


The Linux Terminal Server Project adds thin-client support to Linux
servers.


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/ltsp
Vulnerable: < 5.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


LTSP version 4.2, ships prebuilt copies of programs such as the Linux
Kernel, the X.org X11 server (GLSA 200705-06, GLSA 200710-16, GLSA
200801-09), libpng (GLSA 200705-24, GLSA 200711-08), Freetype (GLSA
200705-02, GLSA 200705-22) and OpenSSL (GLSA 200710-06, GLSA 200710-30)
which were subject to multiple security vulnerabilities since 2006.
Please note that the given list of vulnerabilities might not be
exhaustive.


Impact


A remote attacker could possibly exploit vulnerabilities in the
aforementioned programs and execute arbitrary code, disclose sensitive
data or cause a Denial of Service within LTSP 4.2 clients.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


LTSP 4.2 is not maintained upstream in favor of version 5. Since
version 5 is not yet available in Gentoo, the package has been masked.
We recommend that users unmerge LTSP:
Code:
# emerge --unmerge net-misc/ltsp

If you have a requirement for Linux Terminal Servers, please either set
up a terminal server by hand or use one of the distributions that
already migrated to LTSP 5. If you want to contribute to the
integration of LTSP 5 in Gentoo, or want to follow its development,
find details in bug 177580.
