    Debian Security Advisory DSA 352-1 security@debian.org

    Package : fdclone
    Vulnerability : insecure temporary directory
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0596

    fdclone creates a temporary directory in /tmp as a workspace.
    However, if this directory already exists, the existing directory is
    used instead, regardless of its ownership or permissions. This would
    allow an attacker to gain access to fdclone's temporary files and
    their contents, or replace them with other files under the attacker's
    control.

    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.00a-1woody3.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.04-1.

    We recommend that you update your fdclone 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.
