Package : couchdb
Vulnerability : untrusted search path
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2010-2953
Debian Bug : 594412

Dan Rosenberg discovered that in couchdb, a distributed,
fault-tolerant and schema-free document-oriented database, an insecure
library search path is used; a local attacker could execute arbitrary
code by first dumping a maliciously crafted shared library in some
directory, and then having an administrator run couchdb from this same
directory.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.0-2+lenny1.

We recommend that you upgrade your couchdb package.
