Severity:          Remote arbitrary code execution vulnerability
Date:              2001-06-01

Problem description:
  From
  <URI:http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/bugtraq/2001-05/0281.html>:

  Hidden deep within its code is a format string vulnerability which can be 
  triggered simply by attempting to decrypt a file with a specially crafted 
  filename. This vulnerability can allow a malicious user to gain 
  unathorized access to the account which attempted the decryption. 

Action:
  We recommend that all systems with this package installed are upgraded.


Location:
  All TSL updates are available from
  <URI:http://www.trustix.net/pub/Trustix/updates/>
  <URI:ftp://ftp.trustix.net/pub/Trustix/updates/>


Automatic updates:
  Users of the SWUP tool, can enjoy having updates automatically
  installed using 'swup --upgrade'.
  Note that kernel packages are not normally fit to be upgraded this way
  and therefore excluded in the default configuration.
