Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA794] DSA-794-1 polygen

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-794-1 polygen

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Justin Rye noticed that polygen generates precompiled grammar objects
world-writable, which can be exploited by a local attacker to at least
fill up the filesystem.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the polygen package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-7sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-9.
We recommend that you upgrade your polygen package.
