USN49-1 : debmake vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote package "debmake" is missing a security patch.
Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that the debstd script from
debmake, a deprecated helper package for Debian packaging, created
temporary directories in an insecure manner. This could allow a
symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
rights of the user invoking the program.
Upgrade to :
- debmake-3.7.4ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
