Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA342] DSA-342-1 mozart

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-342-1 mozart

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

mozart, a development platform based on the Oz language, includes MIME
configuration data which specifies that Oz applications should be
passed to the Oz interpreter for execution. This means that file
managers, web browsers, and other programs which honor the mailcap
file could automatically execute Oz programs downloaded from untrusted
sources. Thus, a malicious Oz program could execute arbitrary code
under the uid of a user running a MIME-aware client program if the
user selected a file (for example, choosing a link in a web browser).
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.3.20011204-3woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.5.20030212-2.
We recommend that you update your mozart package.
