Debian Security Advisory DSA 730-1                                        Martin Schulze
May 27th, 2005

Package        : bzip2
Vulnerability  : race condition
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0953
Debian Bug     : 303300

Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in bzip2, a high-quality
block-sorting file compressor and decompressor.  When decompressing a
file in a directory an attacker has access to, bunzip2 could be
tricked to set the file permissions to a different file the user has
permissions to.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.2-1.woody2

For the testing distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.2-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.2-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your bzip2 packages.

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.

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 alias woody
