    Package        : osh
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3347 CVE-2005-3533
    Debian Bug     : 338312
    
    Several security related problems have been discovered in osh, the
    operator's shell for executing defined programs in a privileged
    environment.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following vulnerabilities:
    
    CVE-2005-3347
    
        Charles Stevenson discovered a bug in the substitution of
        variables that allows a local attacker to open a root shell.
    
    CVE-2005-3533
    
        Solar Eclipse discovered a buffer overflow caused by the current
        working directory plus a filename that could be used to execute
        arbitrary code and e.g. open a root shell.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7-11woody2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7-13sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7-15, however, the package has been removed entirely.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your osh package.
