Debian Security Advisory DSA 918-1                     security@debian.org

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

Package        : osh
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3347 CVE-2005-3533
Debian Bug     : 338312

Several security related problems have been discovered in osh, the
operator's shell for executing defined programs in a privileged
environment.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following vulnerabilities:

CVE-2005-3347

    Charles Stevenson discovered a bug in the substitution of
    variables that allows a local attacker to open a root shell.

CVE-2005-3533

    Solar Eclipse discovered a buffer overflow caused by the current
    working directory plus a filename that could be used to execute
    arbitrary code and e.g. open a root shell.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7-11woody2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7-13sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7-15, however, the package has been removed entirely.

We recommend that you upgrade your osh 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.
