Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA883] DSA-883-1 thttpd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-883-1 thttpd

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit team
discovered that the syslogtocern script from thttpd, a tiny webserver,
uses a temporary file insecurely, permiting a local attacker to craft a
symlink attack to overwrite arbitrary files.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.21b-11.3.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.23beta1-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.23beta1-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your thttpd package.
