Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA687] DSA-687-1 bidwatcher

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-687-1 bidwatcher

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
format string vulnerability in bidwatcher, a tool for watching and
bidding on eBay auctions. This problem can be triggered remotely by a
web server of eBay, or someone pretending to be eBay, sending certain
data back. As of version 1.3.17 the program uses cURL and is not
vulnerable anymore.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.3-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your bidwatcher package.
