Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA679] DSA-679-1 toolchain-source

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-679-1 toolchain-source

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Sean Finney discovered several insecure temporary file uses in
toolchain-source, the GNU binutils and GCC source code and scripts.
These bugs can lead a local attacker with minimal knowledge to trick
the admin into overwriting arbitrary files via a symlink attack. The
problems exist inside the Debian-specific tpkg-* scripts.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.4-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.4-5.
We recommend that you upgrade your toolchain-source package.
