Package : dhis-tools-dns
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3341

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that two scripts in the dhis-tools-dns package, DNS
configuration utilities for a dynamic host information System, which
are usually executed by root, create temporary files in an insecure
fashion.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a dhis-tools-dns
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.0-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your dhis-tools-dns package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

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.
