    ===========================================================
    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-194-1 October 06, 2005
    texinfo vulnerability
    CAN-2005-3011
    ===========================================================

    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

    Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
    Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

    The following packages are affected:

    texinfo

    The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
    version 4.6-1ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 4.7-2.2ubuntu1.1 (for
    Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
    effect the necessary changes.

    Details follow:

    Frank Lichtenheld discovered that the "texindex" program created
    temporary files in an insecure manner. This could allow a symlink
    attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of
    the user running texindex.
