Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-559-1 net-acct

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Stefan Nordhausen has identified a local security hole in net-acct, a
user-mode IP accounting daemon. Old and redundant code from some time
way back in the past created a temporary file in an insecure fashion.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.71-5woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.71-7.
We recommend that you upgrade your net-acct package.
