thankyou for the testing, we will fix the relevant issues in 
Up2Date 2.021, which will be out really soon. 
All Astaro  users please note, that some of the mentioned issues are

Best Regards,

Dear BugTraq readers. I've taken a short glimpse on Astaro Security 
Linux and found out some points of interest that are mostly design 
flaws. Please note that I am theorising (based on a 1 1/2 
hour research 
only) about the impacts and have not proven their concepts on Astaro 
Security Linux yet even though most can be proved easily.

Some of the vulnerabilities might be local and some might argue about 
that Astaro Security Linux is a Firewall and no server... but 
as it uses 
SSHD it could always be that the "loginuser" account might have been 
compromised and shell access granted.


5 Design flaws
2 Completely theorised design flaws
1 Possible design flaw
1 Licensing violation
1 Software bug

Category 1: Design flaw
