Debian Security Advisory DSA 822-1 security@debian.org

Package : gtkdiskfree
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file creation
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2918

Eric Romang discovered that gtkdiskfree, a GNOME program that shows
free and used space on filesystems, creates a temporary file in an
insecure fashion.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.9.3-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gtkdiskfree 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.
