Package        : affix
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2250 CAN-2005-2277
BugTraq ID     : 14230
Debian Bug     : 318327 318328

Kevin Finisterre discovered two problems in the Bluetooth FTP client
from affix, user space utilities for the Affix Bluetooth protocol
stack.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following vulnerabilities:

CAN-2005-2250

    A buffer overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
    code via a long filename in an OBEX file share.

CAN-2005-2277

    Missing input sanitising before executing shell commands allow an
    attacker to execute arbitrary commands as root.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.1-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.2-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your affix 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.
