Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.50485
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-49-1 (debmake)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-49-1 (debmake)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to debmake
announced via advisory USN-49-1.

Details follow:

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena noticed that the debstd script from
debmake, a deprecated helper package for Debian packaging, created
temporary directories in an insecure manner. This could allow a
symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
privileges of the user invoking the program.

The following packages are affected: debmake

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 3.7.4ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
