Debian Security Advisory DSA-1402-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp
November 07, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gforge
Vulnerability : insecure temporary files
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-3921

Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered that gforge,
a collaborative development tool, used temporary files insecurely which
could allow local users to truncate files upon the system with the privileges
of the gforge user, or create a denial of service attack.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
4.5.14-22etch3.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1-31sarge4.

We recommend that you upgrade your gforge package.
