    Debian Security Advisory DSA 353-1 security@debian.org

    Package : sup
    Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0606

    sup, a package used to maintain collections of files in identical
    versions across machines, fails to take appropriate security
    precautions when creating temporary files. A local attacker could
    exploit this vulnerability to overwrite arbitrary files with the
    privileges of the user running sup.

    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.8-8woody1.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.8-9.

    We recommend that you update your sup 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.

    Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 alias woody
