Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA843] DSA-843-1 arc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-843-1 arc

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ARC archive program
under Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
Eric Romang discovered that the ARC archive program under Unix
creates a temporary file with insecure permissions which may lead
to a possible hacker stealing sensitive information.
Joey Schulze discovered that the temporary file was created in an
insecure fashion as well, leaving it open to a classic symlink
attack.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain arc packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.21l-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.21m-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your arc package.
