Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA028] DSA-028-1 man-db

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-028-1 man-db

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Styx has reported that the program `man' mistakenly passes
malicious strings (i.e. containing format characters) through routines that
were not meant to use them as format strings. Since this could cause a
segmentation fault and rights were not dropped it may lead to an exploit
for the 'man' user.

We recommend you upgrade your man-db package immediately.
