Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA661] DSA-661-2 f2c

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-661-2 f2c

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Dan McMahill noticed that our advisory DSA 661-1 did not correct
the multiple insecure files problem, hence, this update. For
completeness below is the original advisory text:
Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that f2c and fc, which are both part of the f2c package, a
fortran 77 to C/C++ translator, open temporary files insecurely and
are hence vulnerable to a symlink attack. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:
Multiple insecure temporary files in the f2c translator.
Two insecure temporary files in the f2 shell script.
For the stable distribution (woody) and all others including testing
this problem has been fixed in version 20010821-3.2.
We recommend that you upgrade your f2c package.
