Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA704] DSA-704-1 remstats

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-704-1 remstats

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Jens Steube discovered several vulnerabilities in remstats, the remote
statistics system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
When processing uptime data on the unix-server a temporary file is
opened in an insecure fashion which could be used for a symlink
attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the permissions
of the remstats user.
The remoteping service can be exploited to execute arbitrary
commands due to missing input sanitising.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00a4-8woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.13a-5.
We recommend that you upgrade your remstats packages.
