Package : libvirt-bin
Vulnerability : files and device nodes ownership change to kvm group
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID : CVE-2013-1766
Debian Bug : 701649

Bastian Blank discovered that libvirtd, a daemon for management of virtual
machines, network and storage, would change ownership of devices files so they
would be owned by user `libvirt-qemu` and group `kvm`, which is a general

those devices and files for the kvm group members.

[SECURITY] [DSA 2649-1] lighttpd security update
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-2649-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Yves-Alexis Perez

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : lighttpd
Vulnerability : fixed socket name in world-writable directory
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID : CVE-2013-1427
Debian Bug :

Stefan Bühler discovered that the Debian specific configuration file for
lighttpd webserver FastCGI PHP support used a fixed socket name in the
world-writable /tmp directory. A symlink attack or a race condition could be
exploited by a malicious user on the same machine to take over the PHP control
socket and for example force the webserver to use a different PHP version.

As the fix is in a configuration file lying in /etc, the update won't be
enforced if the file has been modified by the administrator. In that case, care
should be taken to manually apply the fix.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.28-2+squeeze1.3.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.31-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.31-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
