Mageia 2021-0220: bind security update


A broken inbound incremental zone update (IXFR) can cause named to terminate unexpectedly(CVE-2021-25214). Mageia 7 version not affected. An assertion check can fail while answering queries for DNAME records that require the DNAME to be processed to resolve itself (CVE-2021-25215). This affects both versions. A second vulnerability in BIND's GSSAPI security policy negotiation can be targeted by a buffer overflow attack (CVE-2021-25216). Mageia 7 version not affected.

Mageia 2021-0219: libx11 security update


XLookupColor() and other X libraries function lack proper validation of the length of their string parameters. If those parameters can be controlled by an external application (for instance a color name that can be emitted via a terminal control sequence) it can lead to the emission of extra X protocol requests to the X server

Mageia 2021-0218: mediawiki security update


An infinite loop in SMLLexer in Pygments versions 1.5 to 2.7.3 may lead to denial of service when performing syntax highlighting of a Standard ML (SML) source file, as demonstrated by input that only contains the "exception" keyword (CVE-2021-20270). A deadlock vulnerability was found in '' in versions before 1.28.1. When a container image is processed, each layer is unpacked using `tar`. If one of those layers is not a valid `tar` archive this causes an error leading to an unexpected situation where the code indefinitely waits for the tar unpacked stream, which never finishes. An attacker could use this vulnerability to craft a malicious image, which when downloaded and stored by an application using containers/storage, would then cause a deadlock leading to a Denial of Service (DoS) (CVE-2021-27291). An issue was discovered in MediaWiki before 1.31.13 and 1.32.x through 1.35.x before 1.35.2. When using the MediaWiki API to "protect" a page, a user is currently able to protect to a higher level than they currently have permissions for (CVE-2021-30152).

Mageia 2021-0216: openjpeg2 security update


There is a flaw in the opj2_compress program in openjpeg2. An attacker who is able to submit a large number of image files to be processed in a directory by opj2_compress, could trigger a heap out-of-bounds write due to an integer overflow, which is caused by the large number of image files. The greatest threat posed by this flaw is to confidentiality, integrity, and availability. This flaw affects the opj2_compress utility but is not in the openjpeg2 library. Therefore, the attack vector is local to the opj2_compress utility and would require an attacker to convince a user to open a directory with an extremely large number of files using opj2_compress, or a script to be feeding such arbitrary, untrusted files to opj2_compress (CVE-2021-29338).

Mageia 2021-0214: kernel security update


This kernel update is based on upstream 5.10.37 and fixes atleast the following security issues: It was discovered that the io_uring implementation of the Linux kernel did not properly enforce the MAX_RW_COUNT limit in some situations. A local
