frysk packages through 2008-08-05 as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are built with an insecure RPATH set in the ELF header of multiple binaries in /usr/bin/f* (e.g. fcore, fcatch, fstack, fstep, ...) shipped in the package. A local attacker can exploit this vulnerability by running arbitrary code as another user.
FireGPG before 0.6 handle user?s passphrase and decrypted cleartext insecurely by writing pre-encrypted cleartext and the user's passphrase to disk which may result in the compromise of secure communication or a users?s private key.
Jetty 6.x before 6.1.22 suffers from an escape sequence injection vulnerability from two different vectors: 1) "Cookie Dump Servlet" and 2) Http Content-Length header. 1) A POST request to the form at "/test/cookie/" with the "Age" parameter set to a string throws a "java.lang.NumberFormatException" which reflects binary characters including ESC. These characters could be used to execute arbitrary commands or buffer dumps in the terminal. 2) The same attack in 1) can be exploited by requesting a page using an HTTP request "Content-Length" header set to a letteral string.
The keygen.sh script in Shibboleth SP 2.0 (located in /usr/local/etc/shibboleth by default) uses OpenSSL to create a DES private key which is placed in sp-key.pm. It relies on the root umask (default 22) instead of chmoding the resulting file itself, so the generated private key is world readable by default.
