CentOS Update for openchange CESA-2013:0515 centos6

Published: 2013-03-12 04:32:45
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'openchange' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
openchange on CentOS 6

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The openchange Linux Distribution Packages provide libraries to access Microsoft Exchange servers using native protocols. Evolution-MAPI uses these libraries to integrate the Evolution PIM application with Microsoft Exchange servers. A flaw was found in the Samba suite's Perl-based DCE/RPC IDL (PIDL) compiler. As OpenChange uses code generated by PIDL, this could have resulted in buffer overflows in the way OpenChange handles RPC calls. With this update, the code has been generated with an updated version of PIDL to correct this issue. (CVE-2012-1182) The openchange Linux Distribution Packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version, including support for the rebased samba4 Linux Distribution Packages and several API changes. (BZ#767672, BZ#767678) This update also fixes the following bugs: * When the user tried to modify a meeting with one required attendee and himself as the organizer, a segmentation fault occurred in the memcpy() function. Consequently, the evolution-data-server application terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This bug has been fixed and evolution-data-server no longer crashes in the described scenario. (BZ#680061) * Prior to this update, OpenChange 1.0 was unable to send messages with a large message body or with extensive attachment. This was caused by minor issues in OpenChange's exchange.idl definitions. This bug has been fixed and OpenChange now sends extensive messages without complications. (BZ#870405) All users of openchange are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which fix these issues and add these enhancements.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
