==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-194-1    October 06, 2005
texinfo vulnerability
CAN-2005-3011
==========================================================
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

texinfo

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4.6-1ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 4.7-2.2ubuntu1.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Frank Lichtenheld discovered that the "texindex" program created
temporary files in an insecure manner. This could allow a symlink
attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of
the user running texindex.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog):
