[USN-1038-1] dpkg vulnerability
From: Kees Cook <kees () ubuntu com>
Date: Thu, 6 Jan 2011 14:09:39 -0800

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1038-1          January 06, 2011
dpkg vulnerability
CVE-2010-1679
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Ubuntu 10.10

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 9.10:
  dpkg-dev                        1.15.4ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
  dpkg-dev                        1.15.5.6ubuntu4.5

Ubuntu 10.10:
  dpkg-dev                        1.15.8.4ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Jakub Wilk and Raphaƫl Hertzog discovered that dpkg-source did not
correctly handle certain paths and symlinks when unpacking source-format
version 3.0 packages. If a user or an automated system were tricked into
unpacking a specially crafted source package, a remote attacker could
modify files outside the target unpack directory, leading to a denial
of service or potentially gaining access to the system.
