Hash: SHA1

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-1764-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff
April 07, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : tunapie
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2009-1253 CVE-2009-1254

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tunapie, a GUI frontend
to video and radio streams. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:


Kees Cook discovered that insecure handling of temporary files may
lead to local denial of service through symlink attacks.


Mike Coleman discovered that insufficient escaping of stream
URLs may lead to the execution of arbitrary commands if a user
is tricked into opening a malformed stream URL.

For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.3.1-1+etch2. Due to a technical problem, this update cannot
be released synchronously with the stable (lenny) version, but will
appear soon.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.8-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your tunapie package.
