CentOS Update for vino CESA-2013:0169 centos6

Published: 2013-01-24 03:57:31
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

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

Affected Versions:
vino on CentOS 6

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
Vino is a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) server for GNOME. It allows remote users to connect to a running GNOME session using VNC. It was found that Vino transmitted all clipboard activity on the system running Vino to all clients connected to port 5900, even those who had not authenticated. A remote attacker who is able to access port 5900 on a system running Vino could use this flaw to read clipboard data without authenticating. (CVE-2012-4429) Two out-of-bounds memory read flaws were found in the way Vino processed client framebuffer requests in certain encodings. An authenticated client could use these flaws to send a specially-crafted request to Vino, causing it to crash. (CVE-2011-0904, CVE-2011-0905) In certain circumstances, the vino-preferences dialog box incorrectly indicated that Vino was only accessible from the local network. This could confuse a user into believing connections from external networks are not allowed (even when they are allowed). With this update, vino-preferences no longer displays connectivity and reachable information. (CVE-2011-1164) There was no warning that Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) was used to open ports on a user's network router when the 'Configure network automatically to accept connections' option was enabled (it is disabled by default) in the Vino preferences. This update changes the option's description to avoid the risk of a UPnP router configuration change without the user's consent. (CVE-2011-1165) All Vino users should upgrade to this updated Linux Distribution Package, which contains backported patches to resolve these issues. The GNOME session must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

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".
