Default Low: ibutils security and bug fix update

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

================================================== ===================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: ibutils security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:0311-03
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0311.html
Issue date: 2012-02-21
CVE Names: CVE-2008-3277
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated ibutils packages that fix one security issue and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, x86_64

3. Description:

The ibutils packages provide InfiniBand network and path diagnostics.

It was found that the ibmssh executable had an insecure relative RPATH
(runtime library search path) set in the ELF (Executable and Linking
Format) header. A local user able to convince another user to run ibmssh in
an attacker-controlled directory could run arbitrary code with the
privileges of the victim. (CVE-2008-3277)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Under certain circumstances, the "ibdiagnet -r" command could suffer from
memory corruption and terminate with a "double free or corruption" message
and a backtrace. With this update, the correct memory management function
is used to prevent the corruption. (BZ#711779)

All users of ibutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
