Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA615] DSA-615-1 debmake

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-615-1 debmake

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Project
noticed that the debstd script from
debmake, a deprecated helper package for Debian packaging, created
temporary directories in an insecure manner. This can be exploited by
a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the victim.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.10.woody.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.7.7.
We recommend that you upgrade your debmake package.
