Debian Security Advisory DSA-1767-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde
April 9th, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : multipath-tools
Vulnerability : insecure file permissions
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2009-0115
Debian Bug : 522813


It was discovered that multipathd of multipath-tools, a tool-chain to manage
disk multipath device maps, uses insecure permissions on its unix domain
control socket which enables local attackers to issue commands to multipathd
prevent access to storage devices or corrupt file system data.


For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.7-1.1etch2.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.8-14+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.8-15.


We recommend that you upgrade your multipath-tools packages.

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.
