Debian Security Advisory DSA 658-1 security@debian.org

Package : libdbi-perl
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0077

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library, the Perl5 database interface, creates a tmporary PID file in an insecure manner. This can be exploited by a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files owned by the person executing the parts of the library.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.21-2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.46-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your libdbi-perl package.
