[USN-198-1] cfengine vulnerabilities

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-198-1           October 10, 2005
cfengine vulnerabilities
CAN-2005-2960, CAN-2005-3137
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

cfengine

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.6.5-1ubuntu0.4.10.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or
1.6.5-1ubuntu0.5.04.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that several tools in the
cfengine package (vicf, cfmailfilter, and cfcron) create and use
temporary files in an insecure way. A local attacker could exploit
this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with
the privileges of the user running the cfengine program.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 4.10:
