Debian Security Advisory DSA 704-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze April 4th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : remstats Vulnerability : tempfile, missing input sanitising Problem-Type : local, remote Debian-specific: no CVE IDs : CAN-2005-0387 CAN-2005-0388

Jens Steube discovered several vulnerabilities in remstats, the remote statistics system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-0387

When processing uptime data on the unix-server a temporary file is
opened in an insecure fashion which could be used for a symlink
attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the permissions
of the remstats user.

CAN-2005-0388

The remoteping service can be exploited to execute arbitrary
commands due to missing input sanitising.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.00a4-8woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.13a-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your remstats packages.
