Buildpacks and Stacks

Notably, this release addresses:

USN-3116-1: DBus vulnerabilities Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3116-1: - CVE-2015-0245: D-Bus 1.4.x through 1.6.x before 1.6.30, 1.8.x before 1.8.16, and 1.9.x before 1.9.10 does not validate the source of ActivationFailure signals, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (activation failure error returned) by leveraging a race condition involving sending an ActivationFailure signal before systemd responds.

USN-3117-1: GD library vulnerabilities Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3117-1: - CVE-2016-6911: invalid read in gdImageCreateFromTiffPtr() - CVE-2016-7568: Integer overflow in the gdImageWebpCtx function in gd_webp.c in the GD Graphics Library (aka libgd) through 2.2.3, as used in PHP through 7.0.11, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted imagewebp and imagedestroy calls. - CVE-2016-8670: Stack Buffer Overflow in GD dynamicGetbuf

USN-3119-1: Bind vulnerability Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3119-1: - CVE-2016-8864: A problem handling responses containing a DNAME answer can lead to an assertion failure

USN-3123-1: curl vulnerabilities Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3123-1: - CVE-2016-7141: curl and libcurl before 7.50.2, when built with NSS and the library is available at runtime, allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of a TLS connection by leveraging reuse of a previously loaded client certificate from file for a connection for which no certificate has been set, a different vulnerability than CVE-2016-5420. - CVE-2016-7167: Multiple integer overflows in the (1) curl_escape, (2) curl_easy_escape, (3) curl_unescape, and (4) curl_easy_unescape functions in libcurl before 7.50.3 allow attackers to have unspecified impact via a string of length 0xffffffff, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. - CVE-2016-8615: cookie injection for other servers - CVE-2016-8616: case insensitive password comparison - CVE-2016-8617: OOB write via unchecked multiplication - CVE-2016-8618: double-free in curl_maprintf - CVE-2016-8619: double-free in krb5 code - CVE-2016-8620: glob parser write/read out of bounds - CVE-2016-8621: curl_getdate read out of bounds - CVE-2016-8622: URL unescape heap overflow via integer truncation - CVE-2016-8623: Use-after-free via shared cookies - CVE-2016-8624: invalid URL parsing with ‘#’
