Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-796-1 affix

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Kevin Finisterre reports that affix, a package used to manage
bluetooth sessions under Linux, uses the popen call in an unsafe
fashion. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary commands on a vulnerable system.

package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.1-3.

version 2.1.2-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your affix package.
