Debian Security Advisory DSA 796-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Michael Stone
September 1st, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : affix
Vulnerability : remote command execution
Problem-Type : unsafe use of popen
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2716

Kevin Finisterre reports that affix, a package used to manage
bluetooth sessions under Linux, uses the popen call in an unsafe
fashion. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary commands on a vulnerable system.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the affix
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.1-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.2-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your affix 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.
