Package : lvm10
Vulnerability : insecure temporary directory
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0972
Debian Bug : 279229

Trustix developers discovered insecure temporary file creation in a supplemental script in the lvm10 package that didn't check for existing temporary directories, allowing local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-5woody2.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your lvm10 package.
