Description


Debian Security Advisory security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman December 9, 1999


Package : htdig Vulnerability type: remote exploit Debian-specific : no

The version of htdig that was shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a problem with calling external programs to handle non-HTML documents: it calls the external program with the document as a parameter, but does not check for shell escapes. This can be exploited by creating files with filenames that include shell escapes to run arbitraty commands on the machine that runs htdig.

This has been fixed in version 3.1.2-4slink6. We recommend you upgrade your htdig package immediately.

wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.
