Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA754] DSA-754-1 centericq

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-754-1 centericq

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Eric Romang discovered that centericq, a text-mode multi-protocol
instant messenger client, creates some temporary files with
predictable filenames and is hence vulnerable to symlink attacks by
local attackers.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.20.0-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.20.0-7.
We recommend that you upgrade your centericq package.
