Debian Security Advisory DSA 883-1                                        Martin Schulze
November 4th, 2005            
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : thttpd
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3124

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit team
discovered that the syslogtocern script from thttpd, a tiny webserver,
uses a temporary file insecurely, allowing a local attacker to craft a
symlink attack to overwrite arbitrary files.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.21b-11.3.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.23beta1-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.23beta1-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your thttpd 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.
