Debian Security Advisory DSA 460-1                     security () debian org

Package        : sysstat
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0108

Alan Cox discovered that the isag utility (which graphically displays
data collected by the sysstat tools), creates a temporary file without
taking proper precautions.  This vulnerability could allow a local
attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking
isag.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 5.0.1-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your sysstat 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.
