[USN-847-1] Devscripts vulnerability

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-847-1           October 08, 2009
devscripts vulnerability
CVE-2009-2946
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  devscripts                      2.10.11ubuntu5.8.04.4

Ubuntu 8.10:
  devscripts                      2.10.26ubuntu15.2

Ubuntu 9.04:
  devscripts                      2.10.39ubuntu7.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Raphael Geissert discovered that uscan, a part of devscripts, did not
properly sanitize its input when processing pathnames. If uscan processed a
crafted filename for a file on a remote server, an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
