Debian Security Advisory DSA 1343-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer
September 25th, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : file
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2007-2799

The Debian 4.0r1 release contains a file package with the same version
number as the last security update (4.17-5etch2), potentially overriding
it. This security advisory reissues DSA-1343-1 with a higher version
number, to ensure that its changes remain in effect. The changes from
Debian 4.0r1 (which fix a minor denial of service issue, CVE-2007-2026)
are included as well.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.17-5etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), the security vulnerability has been
fixed in version 4.21-1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected by the security
vulnerability.

We recommend that you upgrade your file (4.17-5etch3) 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.
