Debian Security Advisory DSA-1450-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp
January 05, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : util-linux
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-5191
Debian Bug : XXX


It was discovered that util-linux, Miscellaneous system utilities, didn't
drop privileged users and groups in the correct order in the mount and
umount commands. This could potentially allow a local user to gain
additional privileges.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.12r-19etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.12p-4sarge2.

We recommend that you upgrade your util-linux 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.
