Debian Security Advisory                             security () debian org

Package: make
Vulnerability type: symlink attack
Debian-specific: no

The make package as shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 is vulnerable to a
race condition that can be exploited with a symlink attack. make used
mktemp while creating temporary files in /tmp. and that is a known
potential security hole, as documented in the man page of mktemp.

This has been fixed in version 3.77-5slink. We recommend you upgrade
your make package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink

  This version of Debian was released only for Intel ia32, the Motorola
  680x0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
