Package : storebackup
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3146 CVE-2005-3147 CVE-2005-3148
Debian Bug : 332434

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the backup utility
storebackup. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:

CVE-2005-3146

Storebackup creates a temporary file predictably, which can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary files on the system with a symlink
attack.

CVE-2005-3147

The backup root directory is created with world-readable permissions,
which may leak sensitive data.

CVE-2005-3148

The user and group rights of symlinks are set incorrectly when making
or restoring a backup, which may leak sensitive data.

The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain storebackup packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.18.4-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.19-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your storebackup package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
