Review: Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You
--------------------------------------------------------------
If I ask "How much do you know about Google?" You may not take even a
second to respond.  But if I may ask "How much does Google know about
you"? You may instantly reply "Wait... what!? Do they!?"  The book
"Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You" by Greg Conti
(Computer Science Professor at West Point) is the first book to reveal
how Google's vast information stockpiles could be used against you or
your business and what you can do to protect yourself.

A Secure Nagios Server
----------------------
Nagios is a monitoring software designed to let you know about problems
on your hosts and networks quickly. You can configure it to be used on
any network. Setting up a Nagios server on any Linux distribution is a
very quick process however to make it a secure setup it takes some
work. This article will not show you how to install Nagios since there
are tons of them out there but it will show you in detail ways to
improve your Nagios security.

  accessing smart card devices.  Basic	functionality (e.g. SELECT
  FILE, READ BINARY) should work on any ISO  7816-4 compatible smart
  card.  Encryption and decryption using private  keys on the smart
  card is possible with PKCS #15 compatible cards, such as the FINEID
  (Finnish Electronic IDentity) card.  Swedish Posten  eID cards have
  also been confirmed to work.	  This is the MinGW cross-compiled
  Windows library.

* Fedora 9 Update: maniadrive-1.2-13.fc9 (May 29)
  -----------------------------------------------
  Update to PHP 5.2.9	 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in
  PHP's mbstring extension. A remote attacker able to pass arbitrary
  input to a PHP script using mbstring conversion functions could cause
  the PHP interpreter to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
  (CVE-2008-5557)    A directory traversal flaw was found in PHP's
  ZipArchive::extractTo function. If PHP is used to extract a malicious
  ZIP archive, it could allow an attacker to write arbitrary files
  anywhere the PHP process has write permissions. (CVE-2008-5658) A
  buffer overflow flaw was found in PHP's imageloadfont function. If a
  PHP script allowed a remote attacker to load a carefully crafted font
  file, it could cause the PHP interpreter to crash or, possibly,
  execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-3658)    A memory disclosure flaw
  was found in the PHP gd extension's imagerotate function. A remote
  attacker able to pass arbitrary values as the "background color"
  argument of the function could, possibly, view portions of the PHP
  interpreter's memory. (CVE-2008-5498)    A cross-site scripting flaw
  was found in a way PHP reported errors for invalid cookies. If the
  PHP interpreter had "display_errors" enabled, a remote attacker able
  to set a specially-crafted cookie on a victim's system could possibly
  inject arbitrary HTML into an error message generated by PHP.
  (CVE-2008-5814)    A flaw was found in the handling of the
  "mbstring.func_overload" configuration setting. A value set for one
  virtual host, or in a user's .htaccess file, was incorrectly applied
  to other virtual hosts on the same server, causing the handling of
  multibyte character strings to not work correctly. (CVE-2009-0754)
  A flaw was found in PHP's json_decode function. A remote attacker
  could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted string which could
  cause the PHP interpreter to crash while being decoded in a PHP
  script. (CVE-2009-1271)    A flaw was found in the use of the uw-imap
  library by the PHP "imap" extension. This could cause the PHP
  interpreter to crash if the "imap" extension was used to read
  specially-crafted mail messages with long headers. (CVE-2008-2829)

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:128 ] libmodplug (Jun 4)
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in
  libmodplug: Integer overflow in the CSoundFile::ReadMed function
  (src/load_med.cpp) in libmodplug before 0.8.6, as used in
  gstreamer-plugins and other products, allows context-dependent
  attackers to execute arbitrary code via a MED file with a crafted (1)
  song comment or (2) song name, which triggers a heap-based buffer
  overflow (CVE-2009-1438). Buffer overflow in the PATinst function in
  src/load_pat.cpp in libmodplug before 0.8.7 allows user-assisted
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute
  arbitrary code via a long instrument name (CVE-2009-1513). The
  updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

  /etc/ldap.conf compiled in. This means that users who have their sudo
  config supplied by their ldap server will find their rules no longer
  apply. This updated package uses the correct /etc/ldap.conf file. See
http://www.sudo.ws/sudo/readme_ldap.html for more information on 
  configuring sudo with ldap.

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:124 ] apache (May 31)
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache:
  Memory leak in the zlib_stateful_init function in
  crypto/comp/c_zlib.c in libssl in OpenSSL 0.9.8f through 0.9.8h
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
  consumption) via multiple calls, as demonstrated by initial SSL
  client handshakes to the Apache HTTP Server mod_ssl that specify a
  compression algorithm (CVE-2008-1678). Note that this security issue
  does not really apply as zlib compression is not enabled in the
  openssl build provided by Mandriva, but apache is patched to address
  this issue anyway (conserns 2008.1 only). Cross-site scripting (XSS)
  vulnerability in proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module in Apache
  2.0.63 and earlier, and mod_proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module
  in Apache 2.2.9 and earlier 2.2 versions, allows remote attackers to
  inject arbitrary web script or HTML via wildcards in a pathname in an
  FTP URI (CVE-2008-2939). Note that this security issue was initially
  addressed with MDVSA-2008:195 but the patch fixing the issue was
  added but not applied in 2009.0. The Apache HTTP Server 2.2.11 and
  earlier 2.2 versions does not properly handle Options=IncludesNOEXEC
  in the AllowOverride directive, which allows local users to gain
  privileges by configuring (1) Options Includes, (2) Options
  +Includes, or (3) Options +IncludesNOEXEC in a .htaccess file, and
  then inserting an exec element in a .shtml file (CVE-2009-1195). This
  update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVA-2009:076-1 ] kdelibs (May 29)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  On Mandriva Linux 2009.0, installing a KDE3 package wouldn't
  automatically install the locales package for the system's language.
  This update fixes the issue.

  Update:

  On the previous kdelibs update we added a require on kde-i18n. After
  some discussion it appears that adding a suggests is a better choice.
  This also fixes the update, which would not work via MandrivaUpdate.
