Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA636] DSA-636-1 glibc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-636-1 glibc

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several insecure uses of temporary files have been discovered in
support scripts in the libc6 package which provides the c library for
a GNU/Linux system. Trustix developers found that the catchsegv
script uses temporary files insecurely. Openwall developers
discovered insecure temporary files in the glibcbug script. These
scripts are vulnerable to a symlink attack.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.5-11.8.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.3.2.ds1-20.
We recommend that you upgrade your libc6 package.
