APPLE-SA-2005-08-15 Security Update 2005-007

Security Update 2005-007 is now available and delivers the following
security enhancements:

Apache 2
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-1344
Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.3.9
Impact: The htdigest program contains a buffer overflow, which if
used improperly in a CGI application, could allow a remote system
compromise.
Description: The htdigest program could be used in a CGI application
to manage user access controls to a web server. htdigest contains a
buffer overflow. This update fixes the buffer overflow in htdigest.
Apple does not provide any CGI applications that use the htdigest
program. Apache 2 ships only with Mac OS X Server, and is off by
default. This issue was fixed for Apache 1.3 in Security Update
2005-005. Credit to JxT of SNOsoft for reporting this issue.

Apache 2
CVE-ID: CAN-2004-0942, CAN-2004-0885
Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.3.9
Impact: Multiple security issues in Apache 2.
Description: The Apache Group fixed two vulnerabilities between
versions 2.0.52 and 2.0.53. The Apache Group security page for Apache
2 is located at
http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_20.html. The
previously available version of Apache 2 was 2.0.52. Apache 2 is
updated to version 2.0.53. Apache 2 ships only with Mac OS X Server,
and is off by default.

Apache 2
CVE-ID: CAN-2004-1083, CAN-2004-1084
Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: Apache 2 example configurations does not fully block access
to resource forks, ".ht" files, or ".DS_Store" files.
Description: Apache 2 ships only with Mac OS X Server, and is off by
default. It is important that administrators who enable this server
manually are aware of the files that should be blocked to avoid
security exposures. A default Apache 2 configuration blocks access to
files starting with ".ht" in a case sensitive way. The Apple HFS+
filesystem performs file access in a case insensitive way and maps
resource forks of files to path names. The Finder may also create
.DS_Store files containing the names of files in locations used to
serve web pages. This update modifies the sample Apache 2
configuration to show how to restrict access to these files and
resource forks. This issue was fixed for Apache 1.3 in Security
Update 2004-12-02. Additional information is provided in
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300422

Available for: Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X
v10.4.2, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: Opening a maliciously crafted Microsoft Word .doc file could
result in arbitrary code execution.
Description: A buffer overflow in AppKit that is responsible for
reading Word documents could allow arbitrary code execution. Only
applications such as TextEdit that use AppKit to open Word documents
are vulnerable. Microsoft Word for Mac OS X is not vulnerable. This
update prevents the buffer overflow.

AppKit
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-2503
Available for: Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X
v10.4.2, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: A malicious user with physical access to a system could
create additional local accounts.
Description: A malicious user who has full physical access to a
system could create additional accounts by forcing an error
condition. This update prevents the error conditions from occurring
at the login window.

Bluetooth
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-2504
Available for: Mac OS X v10.4.2, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: The System Profiler information about whether or not a
Bluetooth device requires authentication is misleading
Description: Selecting "Require pairing for security" in Bluetooth
preferences correctly sets the device to require authentication, but
in System Profiler the device is labeled with "Requires

be used to execute arbitrary code. This issue has been addressed by
improved handling of command line arguments. This issue does not
affect Mac OS X 10.4. Credit to David Remahl of www.remahl.se/david
for reporting this issue.

CoreFoundation
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-2506
Available for: Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X
v10.4.2, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: Passing a malformed date to the CoreFoundation framework can
cause applications to stall.

v10.4.2, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
Impact: The CUPS printing service will not print unless it is
restarted.
Description: When handling multiple, simultaneous, print jobs the
CUPS printing service can stop printing because it incorrectly tracks
open file descriptors. In addition, if CUPS receives a partial IPP
request and a client terminates the connection, the printing service
will then consume all available CPU. If the service is restarted then
printing will resume. This update corrects the handling of multiple,
simultaneous print jobs and partial requests.

Directory Services
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-2507
Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.4.2
