Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA323] DSA-323-1 noweb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-323-1 noweb

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Jakob Lell discovered a bug in the 'noroff' script included in noweb
whereby a temporary file was created insecurely. During a review,
several other instances of this problem were found and fixed. Any of
these bugs could be exploited by a local user to overwrite arbitrary
files owned by the user invoking the script.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9a-7.3.
For old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.9a-5.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your noweb package.
