Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53539
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 661-2 (f2c)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 661-2 (f2c)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to f2c
announced via advisory DSA 661-2.

Dan McMahill noticed that our our advisory DSA 661-1 did not correct
the multiple insecure files problem, hence, this update. For
completeness below is the original advisory text:

Javier Fernndez-Sanguino Pea from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that f2c and fc, which are both part of the f2c package, a
fortran 77 to C/C++ translator, open temporary files insecurely and
are hence vulnerable to a symlink attack. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:

CVE-2005-0017

Multiple insecure temporary files in the f2c translator.

For the stable distribution (woody) and all others including testing
this problem has been fixed in version 20010821-3.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your f2c package.
