NOTICE

The Official Sun Cobalt Updates End Here!

All Updates from this point are created by me, Zeffie of Zeffie.com...

Please note that you are using these updates at your own risk and I do not provide free support for them. If you have problems you should try installing the pkgs from the command line and watch for any error messages...

These pkg files also represent a basic change in the way updates have been made in the past... While most software was "patched" in the past, it will be my goal to build updated pkgs equivalent to the now Current RedHat Enterprise 3 or best... I will be doing my very best to avoid building "patched" versions of old software however in some places there is no choice.

All-Kernel-MIPS Update 1.0

Cumulative List of Bug Fixes and Feature Changes:

Operating System and User Interface

  • Updated kernel version to improve network stability under load conditions. Now also recognizes multiple SCSI Logical Unit Numbers.
  • The log file /var/log/analog.dns was not being rotated properly in the log rotation process. This could accidentally lead to a diskfull error condition.
  • "The administrator was improperly prevented from modifying a user's settings when any mailing lists beginning with 1, 3 or 4 werecreated on the system."
  • The site user modification routine improperly allowed any site administrator to change the password of the main administrator.
  • The site user addition routine improperly allowed any site administrator to modify the information of another virtual site.
  • User interface now allows two successive dashes in a domain name.
  • Changing the IP address of a main site to match the IP address of an already existing virtual site improperly caused a loss ofnetwork services.
  • The system improperly ignored error messages which occurred while changing IP addresses.
  • Attempting to clear the value of the secondary domain name server at the same time as entering a value for the primary domain nameserver would occasionally fail to clear the value of the secondary domain name server.
  • Users are no longer allowed to improperly create a virtual site with the same IP address as the IP address of their default gateway.
  • The cron program was updated to fix a potential buffer overflow security problem that might allow a user to gain root privileges.
  • The syslog server was updated to fix a potential denial of service security problem.
  • The su command was updated to fix a potential security problem due to the absence of any logging of failed attempts to gain full root access.
E-Mail and Mailing Lists
  • Increased the maximum number of allowable POP connections per minute from 40 to 200.
  • The POP server was upgraded to fix a potential problem where a user would be incorrectly prevented from successfully downloading e-mail messages using a POP connection. This would typically occur when a user's e-mail spool file exceeded more than half of the user's total disk space quota.
  • A user could improperly be created with the same name as an already existing mailing list or e-mail alias, thereby improperlyintercepting e-mail messages.
  • A user on a virtual site improperly received e-mail destined for a user which does not exist on another virtual site if the e-mailis addressed to the same user name. That is to say, a message sent to an invalid user@virtual.site.two.com was improperly sent to the valid user@virtual.site.one.com instead of being bounced. Now, invalid messages will be bounced for all newly created virtual sites. For all existing virtual sites, temporarily changing the host name of the existing virtual sites and then changing them back to their original host name will fix the problem.
  • Fixed a problem where the e-mail aliases of every user in every virtual site were improperly deleted if more than one person made changes to e-mail aliases exactly at the same time.
  • Repeatedly toggling the ""Accept EMail For Domain"" site setting for a virtual site often improperly stopped the mail server from responding.
  • The e-mail server was updated to fix a potential security problem due to the possibility of a user corrupting the aliases database and thereby stopping service.
  • Fixed a security issue whereby a malicious user with shell access could use the vacation message field to compromise the system.
  • The vacation message of a user was not deleted properly when the user was deleted.
  • Changed formatting of date and time within vacation auto responder messages, in order to conform to standards.
  • The mailing list program was updated to fix a potential security problem that might allow a user to gain higher privileges.
  • All mailing lists were created with a default password, which posed a potential security problem. Now, all mailing lists have a randomly generated password for both the list owner and the list moderator.
  • The system no longer allows any member of a mailing list to display all the other members.
  • The system no longer allows any user to display all the mailing lists on the server appliance.
Web and FrontPage Extensions
  • The web server was updated to fix a potential denial of service security problem.
  • The web service normally allowed anybody accessing a web site to view a "".htaccess"" file or "".htpasswd"" file. The web service no longer allows any files that begin with "".ht"" from being transmitted via the web.
  • The cgi wrapper program was updated to disallow any cgi scripts from running unless its ownership is changed from httpd to a specific user. This specifically affects all scripts uploaded via FrontPage. This closes a security problem which allowed a malicious site administrator to modify datain another virtual site.
  • The ownership of all virtual site directories and their contents were changed from httpd to nobody. This closes a security problem which allowed a malicious site administrator to bypass the cgi wrapper program and then modify data in another virtual site.
  • FrontPage configuration errors are now logged in /var/cobalt/adm.log instead of being discarded.
  • Disk quotas were improperly calculated for sites using FrontPage Server Extensions.
FTP and File Sharing
  • The FTP server could improperly deny site administrators access to any directories above their home directories, thereby denying access to their virtual site web directory. This typically occurs for the site administrator group when the total length of the user names in the group are greater than 1024 characters in length.
  • If the IP address of a virtual site with anonymous FTP access enabled was changed to match the IP address of another virtual site with anonymous FTP access enabled, user interface inconsistencies would occur. Anonymous FTP access is now first disabled on the virtual site that is to be changed.
Backup and Restore
  • The backup routine improperly allowed anyone to run a complete or configuration only backup routine, thereby allowing access to some sensitive configuration files. The scheduled backup routine sometimes improperly used text transfer mode instead of using binary transfer mode for all FTP transfers, thereby irretrievable corrupting some backups.
  • The backup routine improperly allowed anyone to run a group backup routine, thereby potentially allowing access to other user's files.
  • Scheduled backups could not be created if share names had dashes in them.
  • Backups of server configuration files did not always properly include all necessary server configuration files.
  • Backups did not properly handle filenames with apostrophes in them.
  • Doing a selective restore of a backup file incorrectly left behind a temporary copy in /home/tmp instead of deleting it properly.
Domain Name Service
  • The domain name server was updated to fix several potential denial of service security problems.
Miscellaneous
  • Internationalized the textual description for two button icons on the virtual site management screen. (Japanese Only)
  • The user interface would incorrectly fail to detect a network time server that was operational in cases where ping requests were being blocked by a firewall.
  • Fixed minor user interface typos in the help text description for the network time server.
