    Debian Bug     : 332434
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the backup utility 
    storebackup. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    CVE-2005-3146
    
        Storebackup creates a temporary file predictably, which can be
        exploited to overwrite arbitrary files on the system with a symlink
        attack.
    
    CVE-2005-3147
    
        The backup root directory is created with world-readable permissions,
        which may leak sensitive data.
    
    CVE-2005-3148
    
        The user and group rights of symlinks are set incorrectly when making
        or restoring a backup, which may leak sensitive data.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) doesn't contain storebackup packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.18.4-2sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.19-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your storebackup package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions

    dpkg -i file.deb

    sources.list as given below:

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