    Package        : interchange
    Vulnerability  : illegal file exposition
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    A problem has been discovered in Interchange, an e-commerce and
    general HTTP database display system, which can lead to an attacker
    being able to read any file to which the user of the Interchange
    daemon has sufficient permissions, when Interchange runs in "INET
    mode" (internet domain socket).  This is not the default setting in
    Debian packages, but configurable with Debconf and via configuration
    file.  We also believe that this bug cannot exploited on a regular
    Debian system.
    This problem has been fixed by the package maintainer in version for the current stable distribution (woody)
    and in version 4.8.6-1 for the unstable distribution (sid).  The old
    stable distribution (potato) is not affected, since it doesn't ship
    the Interchange system.
    We recommend that you upgrade your interchange packages.
    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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next revision.
