Vulnerability  : symlink attack
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-3304

Sylvain Beucler discovered that gforge, a collaborative development
tool, is prone to a symlink attack, which allows local users to perform
a denial of service attack by overwriting arbitrary files.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.7~rc2-7lenny3.
