Debian Security Advisory DSA 760-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : ekg
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1850 CAN-2005-1851 CAN-2005-1916
Debian Bug     : 317027 318059

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in ekg, a console Gadu
Gadu client, an instant messaging program.  The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:


    Marcin Owsiany and Wojtek Kaniewski discovered insecure temporary
    file creation in contributed scripts.


    Marcin Owsiany and Wojtek Kaniewski discovered potential shell
    command injection in a contributed script.


    Eric Romang discovered insecure temporary file creation and
    arbitrary command execution in a contributed script that can be
    exploited by a local attacker.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ekg package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050411-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050712+1.6rc2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ekg 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.
