Debian Security Advisory DSA 923-1                                        Martin Schulze
December 19th, 2005

Package        : dropbear
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4178

A buffer overflow has been discovered in dropbear, a lightweight SSH2
server and client, that may allow authenticated users to execute
arbitrary code as the server user (usually root).

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain dropbear packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.45-2sarge0.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.47-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dropbear 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.
