Debian Security Advisory DSA-1577-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gforge
Vulnerability : insecure temporary files
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0167

Stephen Gran and Mark Hymers discovered that some scripts run by GForge,
a collaborative development tool, open files in write mode in a potentially
insecure manner. This may be exploited to overwrite arbitary files on the
local system.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
4.5.14-22etch8.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gforge package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

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

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