Debian Security Advisory DSA 588-1                     security () debian org

Package        : gzip
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0970
BugTraq ID     : 11288

Trustix developers discovered insecure temporary file creation in
supplemental scripts in the gzip package which may allow local users
to overwrite files via a symlink attack.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.2-3woody3.

The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by these problems.

We recommend that you upgrade your gzip 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.
