Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA928] DSA-928-1 dhis-tools-dns

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-928-1 dhis-tools-dns

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that two scripts in the dhis-tools-dns package, DNS
configuration utilities for a dynamic host information System, which
are usually executed by root, create temporary files in an insecure
fashion.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a dhis-tools-dns
package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0-5.
We recommend that you upgrade your dhis-tools-dns package.
