CVE Request: devscripts: licensecheck: arbitrary shell command injection


devscripts[0,1] contains a utility licensecheck, a simple license
checker for source files. It is as well included at least in Ubuntu
and Fedora[2].

Jonas Smedegaard[3] (and Jakub Wilk with a follow-up message) reported
that licensecheck is prone to arbitrary shell command injection via
shell metacharacters in filenames. The issue was introduced in
devscripts v2.15.5[4] and fixed in v2.15.7[5].

Could you please assign a CVE to identify this issue?

CVE for crypto_get_random() from libsrtp


I've got question whether this bug 
( is 
CVE-worthy? Could it be classified as CWE-330: Use of Insufficiently 
Random Values?

According to the SRTP documentation

it provides 80 bits of random data, which is quite a borderline.

CVE Request: freeradius: the EAP-PWD module performs insufficient validation on packets received from an EAP peer

The FreeRADIUS project has reported a flaw that affects the EAP-PWD
module of the freeradius package versions 3.0 up to 3.0.8. This module
is not enabled by default, so administrators must have manually enabled
it for their servers to be vulnerable.


Can a CVE id be please assigned to this flaw?

A new class of security vulns?

So in past we have had vulns around injection of terminal control
characters into log files:

However now I'm seeing flaws around printing/display of user data, e.g.
systems where a user can set their own name, but fills it with backspace
characters, so when an admin looks at the text record it is
mangled/shows something the attacker wants them to see and not the
"True" data.

An example of this is:

assuming there are no actual terminal escape sequences allowed, but just
backspace characters/etc, is this worthy of a CVE? Right now it
definitely allows manipulation of displayed data, and if an admin cuts
and pastes it would potentially be just the modified data, so I'm
thinking there is an integrity impact (not a very big one mind you), but
it's quite limited (at least as I understand the issue right now).

CVE-2015-1416: vulnerability in patch(1)


I'd like to know whether CVE-2015-1416 is BSD-only issue

In that case, is it tracked in upstream?

Thank you

[CVE Request] WP Slimstat < 4.1.6 - Referer Header XSS


Wordpress plugin 'Slimstat' versions < 4.1.6 fail to neutralize untrusted
input from both the Referer header and the endpoint used by their Javascript
tracking code to report the referrer, if enabled. Since this output is
displayed by default on the front page of the Wordpress admin panel,
the XSS here leads to very easy administrator account compromise.

Reported privately via vendor and fixed in current release.

CVE Request - Go net/http library - HTTP smuggling

Hello OSS Security Community,

The Go open source project has received notification of an HTTP request
smuggling vulnerability in the net/http library ( The vulnerability was identified in the
1.4.2 release version ( and in the 1.5 release branch.

Patches have already been applied to the 1.5 release branch, and will be
ported to the 1.4.2 release branch. We will then create a 1.4.3 release.

We are requesting a CVE ID in order to coordinate updates with
distributions that include binary packages for the Go programming language.
We will also announce and request that all Go programs using the net/http
package that were compiled with version 1.4.2 or earlier be recompiled with
1.4.3 or 1.5 (when released) due to the static linking nature of the Go

Please let me know if you need additional information.

[BIND] CVE-2015-5477: An error in handling TKEY queries can cause named to exit with a REQUIRE assertion failure

A deliberately constructed packet can exploit an error in the
handling of queries for TKEY records, permitting denial of service.

CVE:                 CVE-2015-5477
Document Version:    1.0
Posting date:        28 July 2015
Program Impacted:    BIND
Versions affected:   9.1.0 -> 9.8.x, 9.9.0->9.9.7-P1, 9.10.0->9.10.2-P2
Severity:            Critical
Exploitable:         Remotely


   An error in the handling of TKEY queries can be exploited by an
   attacker for use as a denial-of-service vector, as a constructed
   packet can use the defect to trigger a REQUIRE assertion failure,
   causing BIND to exit.


   Both recursive and authoritative servers are vulnerable to this
   defect.  Additionally, exposure is not prevented by either ACLs
   or configuration options limiting or denying service because the
   exploitable code occurs early in the packet handling, before
   checks enforcing those boundaries.

   All versions of BIND 9 from BIND 9.1.0 (inclusive) through BIND
   9.9.7-P1 and BIND 9.10.2-P2 are vulnerable.

   Operators should take steps to upgrade to a patched version as
