Date 26 Sep 2007

Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
The Debian 4.0r1 release contains a file package with the same version number as the last security update (4.17-5etch2), potentially overriding it. This security advisory reissues DSA-1343-1 with a higher version number, to ensure that its changes remain in effect. The changes from Debian 4.0r1 (which fix a minor denial of service issue, CVE-2007-2026) are included as well.

CVE Id         : CVE-2007-2799

The Debian 4.0r1 release contains a file package with the same version
number as the last security update (4.17-5etch2), potentially overriding
it.  This security advisory reissues DSA-1343-1 with a higher version
number, to ensure that its changes remain in effect.  The changes from
Debian 4.0r1 (which fix a minor denial of service issue, CVE-2007-2026)
are included as well.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.17-5etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), the security vulnerability has been
fixed in version 4.21-1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected by the security
vulnerability.

We recommend that you upgrade your file (4.17-5etch3) 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.
