Debian Security Advisory DSA-1561-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
April 28, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ldm
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-1293
Debian Bug : 469462

Christian Herzog discovered that within the Linux Terminal Server Project,
it was possible to connect to X on any LTSP client from any host on the
network, making client windows and keystrokes visible to that host.

NOTE: most ldm installs are likely to be in a chroot environment exported
over NFS, and will not be upgraded merely by upgrading the server itself.
For example, on the i386 architecture, to upgrade ldm will likely require:

chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get update
chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get dist-upgrade


For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.99debian11+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:0.1~bzr20080308-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldm 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.
