    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.
