Debian GNU/Linux Advisories: flim, rsync

May 03, 2004, 00:06 (0 Talkback[s])

Debian Security Advisory DSA 500-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman
May 1st, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : flim
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2004-0422

Tatsuya Kinoshita discovered a vulnerability in flim, an emacs library for working with internet messages, where temporary files were created without taking appropriate precautions. This vulnerability could potentially be exploited by a local user to overwrite files with the privileges of the user running emacs. the 'chroot' option.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.14.3-9woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your flim package.

Upgrade Instructions


wget url

will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

will update the internal database apt-get upgrade

will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 499-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman
May 1st, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : rsync
Vulnerability : directory traversal
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2004-0426

A vulnerability was discovered in rsync, a file transfer program, whereby a remote user could cause an rsync daemon to write files outside of the intended directory tree. This vulnerability is not exploitable when the daemon is configured with the 'chroot' option.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2.5.5-0.4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.6.1-1.

We recommend that you update your rsync package.
