    Package        : cpio
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1111 CAN-2005-1229
    Debian Bug     : 306693 305372
    
    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in cpio, a program to manage
    archives of files.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CAN-2005-1111
    
        Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in setting the file
        permissions of files extracted from cpio archives.  A local
        attacker with write access to the target directory could exploit
        this to alter the permissions of arbitrary files the extracting
        user has write permissions for.
    
    CAN-2005-1229
    
        Imran Ghory discovered that cpio does not sanitise the path of
        extracted files even if the --no-absolute-filenames option was
        specified.  This can be exploited to install files in arbitrary
        locations where the extracting user has write permissions to.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-39woody2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.5-1.3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cpio package.
    
    
    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.

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