SUSE has issued an update for multiple packages. This fixes some vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information, manipulate certain data, and by malicious people to disclose sensitive information, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
1) A boundary error exists within the "pg_db_putline()" function in perl-DBD-Pg's dbdimp.c. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow if malicious rows are retrieved from the database using the "pg_getline()" or "getline()" function.
2) A memory leak exists within the function "dequote_bytea()" in perl-DBD-Pg's quote.c, which can be exploited to cause a memory exhaustion.
3) Various integer overflow errors exist within the "pdftops" application. This can be exploited to e.g. cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code by printing a specially crafted PDF file.
4) A vulnerability is caused due to an assertion error in bgpd when handling an AS path containing multiple 4 byte AS numbers, which can be exploited to crash to the daemon by advertising specially crafted AS paths.
Solution: Apply updated packages via YaST Online Update or the SUSE FTP server.
