Package : net-acct
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0851
Debian Bug : 270359

Stefan Nordhausen has identified a local security hole in net-acct, a user-mode IP accounting daemon. Old and redundant code from some time way back in the past created a temporary file in an insecure fashion.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.71-5woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.71-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your net-acct package.
