Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA907] DSA-907-1 ipmenu

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-907-1 ipmenu

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Akira Yoshiyama noticed that ipmenu, an cursel iptables/iproute2 GUI,
creates a temporary file in an insecure fashion permiting a local
attacker to overwrite arbitrary files utilising a symlink attack.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.3-4woody1
The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain the ipmenu package.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.3-5.
We recommend that you upgrade your ipmenu package.
