Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA588] DSA-588-1 gzip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-588-1 gzip

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Trustix developers discovered insecure temporary file creation in
supplemental scripts in the gzip package which may permit local users
to overwrite files via a symlink attack.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.2-3woody3.
The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by these problems.
We recommend that you upgrade your gzip package.
