Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA304] DSA-304-1 lv

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-304-1 lv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Leonard Stiles discovered that lv, a multilingual file viewer, would
read options from a configuration file in the current directory.
Because such a file could be placed there by a malicious user, and lv
configuration options can be used to execute commands, this
represented a security vulnerability. A possible hacker could gain the
rights of the user invoking lv, including root.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.49.4-7woody2.
For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 4.49.3-4potato2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
4.49.5-2.
We recommend that you update your lv package.
