Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA835] DSA-835-1 cfengine

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-835-1 cfengine

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered several insecure temporary
file uses in cfengine, a tool for configuring and maintaining
networked machines, that can be exploited by a symlink attack to
overwrite arbitrary files owned by the user executing cfengine, which
is probably root.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.3-9woody1.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.5-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your cfengine package.
