The eCryptfs support utilities (ecryptfs-utils) 73-0ubuntu6.1 on Ubuntu 9.04 stores the mount passphrase in installation logs, which might allow local users to obtain access to the filesystem by reading the log files from disk. NOTE: the log files are only readable by root.

Apport before 0.108.4 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, before 0.119.2 on Ubuntu 8.10, and before 1.0-0ubuntu5.2 on Ubuntu 9.04 does not properly remove files from the application's crash-report directory, which allows local users to delete arbitrary files via unspecified vectors.

None Local Low Single system None Complete Complete
GNOME NetworkManager before does not properly verify privileges for dbus (1) modify and (2) delete requests, which allows local users to change or remove the network connections of arbitrary users via unspecified vectors related to org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings and at_console.

system-tools-backends before 2.6.0-1ubuntu1.1 in Ubuntu 8.10, as used by "Users and Groups" in GNOME System Tools, hashes account passwords with 3DES and consequently limits effective password lengths to eight characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to successfully conduct brute-force password attacks.
