Debian Security Advisory DSA 1704-2 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde January 30th, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : netatalk Vulnerability : arbitrary code execution Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2008-5718 Debian Bug : 510585

The update in DSA 1704-1 was incomplete as it missed to escape a few important characters which enabled an attacker to overwrite arbitrary files.

It was discovered that netatalk, an implementation of the AppleTalk suite, is affected by a command injection vulnerability when processing PostScript streams via papd. This is leading to arbitrary remote code execution. Note that this only affects installations that are configured to use a pipe command in combination with wildcard symbols substituted with values of the printed job.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.3-4+etch2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.4~beta2-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your netatalk package.
