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:


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


    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.
