Debian Security Advisory DSA-1945-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steffen Joeris
December 03, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gforge
Vulnerability : symlink attack
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2009-3304

Sylvain Beucler discovered that gforge, a collaborative development
tool, is prone to a symlink attack, which allows local users to perform
a denial of service attack by overwriting arbitrary files.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.7~rc2-7lenny3.

The oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.5.14-22etch13.

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

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.8.2-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your gforge packages.
