Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA460] DSA-460-1 sysstat

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-460-1 sysstat

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Alan Cox discovered that the isag utility (which graphically displays
data collected by the sysstat tools), creates a temporary file without
taking proper precautions. This vulnerability could permit a local
attacker to overwrite files with the rights of the user invoking
isag.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 5.0.1-1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your sysstat package.
