-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA 670-1 Martin Schulze February 8th, 2005 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : emacs20 Vulnerability : format string Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-0100 Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the movemail utility of Emacs, the well-known editor. Via connecting to a malicious POP server an attacker can execute arbitrary code under the privileges of group mail. For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 20.7-13.3. The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain an Emacs20 package anymore. We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages. 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.
