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

Package : glibc
Vulnerability : insecure temporary files
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0968
BugTraq ID : 11286
Debian Bug : 279680 278278 205600

Several insecure uses of temporary files have been discovered in support scripts in the libc6 package which provices the c library for a GNU/Linux system. Trustix developers found that the catchsegv script uses temporary files insecurely. Openwall developers discovered insecure temporary files in the glibcbug script. These scripts are vulnerable to a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.5-11.8.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.3.2.ds1-20.

We recommend that you upgrade your libc6 package.

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.
