Debian Security Advisory DSA 960-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze January 31st, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : libmail-audit-perl Vulnerability : insecure temporay file createion Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2005-4536 Debian Bug : 344029

Niko Tyni discovered that the Mail::Audit module, a Perl library for creating simple mail filters, logs to a temporary file with a predictable filename in an insecure fashion when logging is turned on, which is not the case by default.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 2.0-4woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 2.1-5sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.1-5sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libmail-audit-perl package.
