Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA867] DSA-867-1 module-assistant

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-867-1 module-assistant

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Eduard Bloch discovered that a rule file in module-assistant, a tool
to ease the creation of module packages, creates a temporary file in
an insecure fashion. It is usually executed from other packages as
well.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a module-assistant
package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.10.
We recommend that you upgrade your module-assistant package.
