Package        : storebackup
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3146 CVE-2005-3147 CVE-2005-3148 
Debian Bug     : 332434

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the backup utility 
storebackup. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:


    Storebackup creates a temporary file predictably, which can be
    exploited to overwrite arbitrary files on the system with a symlink


    The backup root directory is created with world-readable permissions,
    which may leak sensitive data.


    The user and group rights of symlinks are set incorrectly when making
    or restoring a backup, which may leak sensitive data.

The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain storebackup packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.18.4-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.19-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your storebackup package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
