Debian Security Advisory DSA-1577-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst May 14, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : gforge Vulnerability : insecure temporary files Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0167

Stephen Gran and Mark Hymers discovered that some scripts run by GForge, a collaborative development tool, open files in write mode in a potentially insecure manner. This may be exploited to overwrite arbitary files on the local system.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 4.5.14-22etch8.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gforge package.
