---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : openssl
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0975

Trustix developers discovered insecure temporary file creation in a supplemental script (der_chop) of the openssl package which may allow local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.6c-2.woody.7.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.7e-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl package.

Upgrade Instructions
---------------------

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.
