    ===========================================================
    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-70-1 January 25, 2005
    libdbi-perl vulnerabilities
    CAN-2005-0077
    ===========================================================

    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

    Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

    The following packages are affected:

    libdbi-perl

    The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
    version 1.42-3ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
    sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

    Details follow:

    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Project
    discovered that the module DBI::ProxyServer in Perl's DBI library
    created a PID file in an insecure manner. This could allow a symbolic
    link attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges
    of the user invoking a program using this module (like 'dbiproxy').

    Now the module does not create a such a PID file by default.
