Subject: CVE request: OpenSMTPD 5.7.2

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

Dear all,

OpenSMTPd announced version 5.7.2 today[0] listing the following
issues, if CVEs have not been requested for these issues already,
might some be assigned, please?

Issues fixed in this release (since 5.7.1):
===========================================

- - an oversight in the portable version of fgetln() that allows attackers
  to read and write out-of-bounds memory;

- - multiple denial-of-service vulnerabilities that allow local users to
  kill or hang OpenSMTPD;

- - a stack-based buffer overflow that allows local users to crash
  OpenSMTPD, or execute arbitrary code as the non-chrooted _smtpd user;

- - a hardlink attack (or race-conditioned symlink attack) that allows
  local users to unset the chflags() of arbitrary files;

- - a hardlink attack that allows local users to read the first line of
  arbitrary files (for example, root's hash from /etc/master.passwd);

- - a denial-of-service vulnerability that allows remote attackers to fill
  OpenSMTPD's queue or mailbox hard-disk partition;

- - an out-of-bounds memory read that allows remote attackers to crash
  OpenSMTPD, or leak information and defeat the ASLR protection;

- - a use-after-free vulnerability that allows remote attackers to crash
  OpenSMTPD, or execute arbitrary code as the non-chrooted _smtpd user;
