    Package        : gnump3d
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3349 CVE-2005-3355
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gnump3d, a streaming
    server for MP3 and OGG files.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures Project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2005-3349
    
        Ludwig Nussel discovered several temporary files that are created
        with predictable filenames in an insecure fashion and allows local
        attackers to craft symlink attacks.
    
    CVE-2005-3355
    
        Ludwig Nussel discovered that the theme parameter to HTTP
        requests may be used for path traversal.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a gnump3d package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.9.3-1sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.9.8-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnump3 package.
