Debian Security Advisory DSA 172-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : tkmail
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no

It has been discovered that tkmail creates temporary files insecurely.
Exploiting this an attacker with local access can easily create and
overwrite files as another user.

This problem has been fixed in version 4.0beta9-8.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody), in version 4.0beta9-4.1 for the old
stable distribution (potato) and in version 4.0beta9-9 for the
unstable distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your tkmail packages.

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.

Package        : fetchmail, fetchmail-ssl
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Stefan Esser discovered several buffer overflows and a broken boundary
check within fetchmail.  If fetchmail is running in multidrop mode
these flaws can be used by remote attackers to crash it or to execute
arbitrary code under the user id of the user running fetchmail.
Depending on the configuration this even allows a remote root
compromise.

These problems have been fixed in version 5.9.11-6.1 for both
fetchmail and fetchmail-ssl for the current stable distribution
(woody), in version 5.3.3-4.2 for fetchmail for the old stable
distribution (potato) and in version 6.1.0-1 for both fetchmail and
fetchmail-ssl for the unstable distribution (sid).  There are no
fetchmail-ssl packages for the old stable distribution (potato) and
thus no updates.

We recommend that you upgrade your fetchmail packages immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

[ Resent since this advisory did not appear in the list archive.
Also, this is the real DSA 169-1. ]

Package        : htcheck
Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Ulf Harnhammer discovered a problem in ht://Check's PHP interface.
The PHP interface displays information unchecked which was gathered
from crawled external web servers.  This could lead into a cross site
scripting attack if somebody has control over the server responses of
a remote web server which is crawled by ht://Check.

This problem has been fixed in version 1.1-1.1 for the current stable
distribution (woody) and in version 1.1-1.2 for the unstable release
(sid).  The old stable release (potato) does not contain the htcheck
package.

We recommend that you upgrade your htcheck package immediately.

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.
