Debian Security Advisory DSA 901-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : gnump3d
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3349 CVE-2005-3355

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gnump3d, a streaming
server for MP3 and OGG files.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures Project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2005-3349

    Ludwig Nussel discovered several temporary files that are created
    with predictable filenames in an insecure fashion and allows local
    attackers to craft symlink attacks.

CVE-2005-3355

    Ludwig Nussel discovered that the theme parameter to HTTP
    requests may be used for path traversal.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a gnump3d package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.3-1sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.8-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnump3 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.
