Debian Security Advisory DSA 814-1 security@debian.org

September 15th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : lm-sensors
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2672]
Debian Bug : 324193

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that a script of lm-sensors,
utilities to read temperature/voltage/fan sensors, creates a temporary
file with a predictable filename, leaving it vulnerable for a symlink
attack.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.9.1-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.9.1-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your lm-sensors 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.
