Debian Security Advisory DSA 907-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

Package        : ipmenu
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2004-2569
BugTraq ID     : 10269
Debian Bug     : 244709

Akira Yoshiyama noticed that ipmenu, an cursel iptables/iproute2 GUI,
creates a temporary file in an insecure fashion allowing a local
attacker to overwrite arbitrary files utilising a symlink attack.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.3-4woody1

The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain the ipmenu package.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.3-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your ipmenu 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.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
