Debian The unzip update in DSA 903 contained a regression so that symbolic links that are resolved later in a zip archive aren't supported anymore. This update corrects this behaviour.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 903-2                     security@debian.org

Package        : unzip
Vulnerability  : race condition
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2475
BugTraq ID     : 14450
Debian Bugs    : 321927 343680

The unzip update in DSA 903 contained a regression so that symbolic
links that are resolved later in a zip archive aren't supported
anymore.  This update corrects this behaviour.  For completeness,
below plese find the original advisory text:

   Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in the permissions setting
   code in unzip.  When decompressing a file in a directory an
   attacker has access to, unzip could be tricked to set the file
   permissions to a different file the user has permissions to.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.50-1woody5.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.52-1sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.52-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your unzip 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.
