Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA330] DSA-330-1 tcptraceroute

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-330-1 tcptraceroute

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

tcptraceroute is a setuid-root program which drops root rights
after obtaining a file descriptor used for raw packet capture.
However, it did not fully relinquish all rights, and in the event
of an exploitable vulnerability, root rights could be regained.
No current exploit is known, but this safeguard is being repaired in
order to provide a measure of containment in the event that an
exploitable flaw should be discovered.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2-2.
The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a tcptraceroute
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
We recommend that you update your tcptraceroute package.
