Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA857] DSA-857-1 graphviz

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-857-1 graphviz

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure temporary file
creation in graphviz, a rich set of graph drawing tools, that can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary files by a local attacker.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem probably persists
but the package is non-free.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.
We recommend that you upgrade your graphviz package.
