    Package        : remstats
    Vulnerability  : tempfile, missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : local, remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CAN-2005-0387 CAN-2005-0388
    
    Jens Steube discovered several vulnerabilities in remstats, the remote
    statistics system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CAN-2005-0387
    
        When processing uptime data on the unix-server a temporary file is
        opened in an insecure fashion which could be used for a symlink
        attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the permissions
        of the remstats user.
    
    CAN-2005-0388
    
        The remoteping service can be exploited to execute arbitrary
        commands due to missing input sanitising.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.00a4-8woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.13a-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your remstats packages.
