1 CVE-2012-4427 94 2012-09-30 2012-10-02
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
The gnome-shell plugin 3.4.1 in GNOME allows remote attackers to force the download and installation of arbitrary extensions from extensions.gnome.org via a crafted web page.
2 CVE-2012-3466 264 2012-10-22 2013-12-05
4.4
None Local Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
GNOME gnome-keyring 3.4.0 through 3.4.1, when gpg-cache-method is set to "idle" or "timeout," does not properly limit the amount of time a passphrase is cached, which allows attackers to have an unspecified impact via unknown attack vectors.
3 CVE-2012-3452 264 Bypass 2012-08-07 2012-08-08
3.3
None Local Medium Not required Partial Partial None
gnome-screensaver 3.4.x before 3.4.4 and 3.5.x before 3.5.4, when multiple screens are used, only locks the screen with the active focus, which allows physically proximate attackers to bypass screen locking and access an unattended workstation.
4 CVE-2012-3378 310 2012-08-31 2012-09-05
3.3
None Local Medium Not required None Partial Partial
The register_application function in atk-adaptor/bridge.c in GNOME at-spi2-atk 2.5.2 does not seed the random number generator and generates predictable temporary file names, which makes it easier for local users to create or truncate files via a symlink attack on a temporary socket file in /tmp/at-spi2.
5 CVE-2012-3355 94 Exec Code 2012-07-17 2012-09-07
3.6
None Local Low Not required None Partial Partial
(1) AlbumTab.py, (2) ArtistTab.py, (3) LinksTab.py, and (4) LyricsTab.py in the Context module in GNOME Rhythmbox 0.13.3 and earlier allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a symlink attack on a temporary HTML template file in the /tmp/context directory.
6 CVE-2012-2370 189 DoS Overflow 2012-08-13 2013-01-14
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Multiple integer overflows in the read_bitmap_file_data function in io-xbm.c in gdk-pixbuf before 2.26.1 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a negative (1) height or (2) width in an XBM file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
7 CVE-2012-2132 287 Bypass 2012-08-20 2013-02-14
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None Partial None
libsoup 2.32.2 and earlier does not validate certificates or clear the trust flag when the ssl-ca-file does not exist, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication by connecting with a SSL connection.
8 CVE-2012-1177 20 2012-08-26 2013-04-04
5.1
User Remote High Not required Partial Partial Partial
libgdata before 0.10.2 and 0.11.x before 0.11.1 does not validate SSL certificates, which allows remote attackers to obtain user names and passwords via a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack with a spoofed certificate.
9 CVE-2012-0948 264 2012-06-07 2012-06-12
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeMain.py in Update Manager, as used by Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 11.10, and 11.04, uses weak permissions for (1) apt-clone_system_state.tar.gz and (2) system_state.tar.gz, which allows local users to obtain repository credentials.
10 CVE-2012-0039 310 DoS 2012-01-14 2012-02-08
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
** DISPUTED ** GLib 2.31.8 and earlier, when the g_str_hash function is used, computes hash values without restricting the ability to trigger hash collisions predictably, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via crafted input to an application that maintains a hash table. NOTE: this issue may be disputed by the vendor; the existence of the g_str_hash function is not a vulnerability in the library, because callers of g_hash_table_new and g_hash_table_new_full can specify an arbitrary hash function that is appropriate for the application.
11 CVE-2011-5244 189 DoS Exec Code 2012-11-19 2013-02-25
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple off-by-one errors in the (1) token and (2) linetoken functions in backend/dvi/mdvi-lib/afmparse.c in t1lib, as used in teTeX 3.0.x, GNOME evince, and possibly other products, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a DVI file containing a crafted Adobe Font Metrics (AFM) file, different vulnerabilities than CVE-2010-2642 and CVE-2011-0433.
12 CVE-2011-3146 DoS Exec Code 2012-09-05 2012-09-13
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
librsvg before 2.34.1 uses the node name to identify the type of node, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a SVG file with a node with the element name starting with "fe," which is misidentified as a RsvgFilterPrimitive.
13 CVE-2011-2485 DoS 2012-07-03 2012-07-03
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None None Partial
The gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load function in gdk-pixbuf/io-gif.c in gdk-pixbuf before 2.23.5 does not properly handle certain return values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted GIF image file.
14 CVE-2011-0433 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2012-11-19 2012-12-18
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
Heap-based buffer overflow in the linetoken function in afmparse.c in t1lib, as used in teTeX 3.0.x, GNOME evince, and possibly other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a DVI file containing a crafted Adobe Font Metrics (AFM) file, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-2642.
15 CVE-2010-2387 255 +Priv 2012-12-21 2012-12-28
1.9
None Local Medium Not required Partial None None
vicious-extensions/ve-misc.c in GNOME Display Manager (gdm) 2.20.x before 2.20.11, when GDM debug is enabled, logs the user password when it contains invalid UTF8 encoded characters, which might allow local users to gain privileges by reading the information from syslog logs.
