Debian Security Advisory DSA-023-1                       security@debian.org 
http://www.debian.org/security/                               Martin Schulze

Package        : inn2
Vulnerability  : local tempfile vulnerabilities
Debian-specific: no

 1. People at WireX have found several potential insecure uses of
    temporary files in programs provided by INN2.  Some of them only
    lead to a vulnerability to symlink attacks if the temporary
    directory was set to /tmp or /var/tmp, which is the case in many
    installations, at least in Debian packages.  An attacker could
    overwrite any file owned by the news system administrator,
    i.e. owned by news.news.

 2. Michal Zalewski found an exploitable buffer overflow with regard
    to cancel messages and their verification.  This bug did only show
    up if "verifycancels" was enabled in inn.conf which is not the
    default and has been disrecommended by upstream.

 3. Andi Kleen found a bug in INN2 that makes innd crash for two byte
    headers.  There is a chance this can only be exploited with uucp.

We recommend you upgrade your inn2 packages immediately.

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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
