Debian Security Advisory DSA-2953-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Raphael Geissert June 08, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : dpkg CVE ID : CVE-2014-3864 CVE-2014-3865 Debian Bug : 746498 749183

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in dpkg that allow file modification through path traversal when unpacking source packages with especially-crafted patch files.

This update had been scheduled before the end of security support for the oldstable distribution (squeeze), hence an exception has been made and was released through the security archive. However, no further updates should be expected.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 1.15.11.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.16.15.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.17.10.

We recommend that you upgrade your dpkg packages.
