Debian Security Advisory DSA-078-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman September 24, 2001


Package : slrn Problem type : remote command invocation Debian-specific: no

Byrial Jensen found a nasty problem in slrn (a threaded news reader). The notice on slrn-announce describes it as follows:

When trying to decode binaries, the built-in code executes any shell
scripts the article might contain, apparently assuming they would be
some kind of self-extracting archive.

This problem has been fixed in version 0.9.6.2-9potato2 by removing this feature.

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato


Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
