Package        : apt
Debian Bug     : 762079

The previous update for apt, DSA-3025-1, introduced a regression when
file:/// sources are used and those are on a different partition than
the apt state directory. This update fixes the regression.

For reference, the original advisory follows.

It was discovered that APT, the high level package manager, does not
properly invalidate unauthenticated data (CVE-2014-0488), performs
incorrect verification of 304 replies (CVE-2014-0487), does not perform
the checksum check when the Acquire::GzipIndexes option is used
(CVE-2014-0489) and does not properly perform validation for binary
packages downloaded by the apt-get download command (CVE-2014-0490).

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.7.9+deb7u4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.9.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your apt packages.
