Debian Security Advisory DSA 725-1                     security () debian org

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : ppxp
Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0392

Jens Steube discovered that ppxp, yet another PPP program, does not
release root privileges when opening potentially user supplied log
files.  This can be tricked into opening a root shell.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-6woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-11.

We recommend that you upgrade your ppxp 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.
