Test ID:
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 691-1 (abuse)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 691-1 (abuse)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to abuse
announced via advisory DSA 691-1.

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in abuse, the SDL port of
the Abuse action game. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:


Erik Sjlund discovered several buffer overflows in the command line
handling, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with
elevated privileges since it is installed setuid root.


Steve Kemp discoverd that that abuse creates some files without
dropping privileges first, which may lead to the creation and
overwriting of arbitrary files.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.00+-3woody4.

The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain an abuse package anymore.

We recommend that you upgrade your abuse package.
