[USN-220-1] w3c-libwww vulnerability

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-220-1          December 01, 2005
w3c-libwww vulnerability
CVE-2005-3183
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

libwww0

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 5.4.0-9ubuntu0.4.10 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 5.4.0-9ubuntu0.5.04
(for Ubuntu 5.04), or 5.4.0-9ubuntu0.5.10 (for Ubuntu 5.10).  In
general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Sam Varshavchik discovered several buffer overflows in the
HTBoundary_put_block() function. By sending specially crafted HTTP
multipart/byteranges MIME messages, a malicious HTTP server could
trigger an out of bounds memory access in the libwww library, which
causes the program that uses the library to crash.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 4.10:
