Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA725] DSA-725-2 ppxp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-725-2 ppxp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Jens Steube discovered that ppxp, yet another PPP program, does not
release root rights when opening potentially user supplied log
files. This can be tricked into opening a root shell.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.2001080415-6woody2 (DSA 725-1).
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-10sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-11.
We recommend that you upgrade your ppxp package.
