Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA787] DSA-787-1 backup-manager

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-787-1 backup-manager

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two bugs have been found in backup-manager, a command-line driven
backup utility. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
Jeroen Vermeulen discovered that backup files are created with
default permissions making them world readable, even though they
may contain sensitive information.
Sven Joachim discovered that the optional CD-burning feature of
backup-manager uses a hardcoded filename in a world-writable
directory for logging. This can be subject to a symlink attack.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not provide the
backup-manager package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.7-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.8-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your backup-manager package.
