Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68806
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1038-1 (dpkg)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1038-1 (dpkg)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to dpkg
announced via advisory USN-1038-1.

Details follow:

Jakub Wilk and Raphael Hertzog discovered that dpkg-source did not
correctly handle certain paths and symlinks when unpacking source-format
version 3.0 packages. If a user or an automated system were tricked into
unpacking a specially crafted source package, a remote attacker could
modify files outside the target unpack directory, leading to a denial
of service or potentially gaining access to the system.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10:
dpkg-dev 1.15.4ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
dpkg-dev 1.15.5.6ubuntu4.5

Ubuntu 10.10:
dpkg-dev 1.15.8.4ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
