Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.892246
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian LTS: Security Advisory for xawtv (DLA-2246-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'xawtv'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2246-1 advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'xawtv'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2246-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
An issue was discovered in LinuxTV xawtv before 3.107. The function
dev_open() in v4l-conf.c does not perform sufficient checks to
prevent an unprivileged caller of the program from opening unintended
filesystem paths. This allows a local attacker with access to the
v4l-conf setuid-root program to test for the existence of arbitrary
files and to trigger an open on arbitrary files with mode O_RDWR.
To achieve this, relative path components need to be added to the
device path, as demonstrated by a
v4l-conf -c /dev/../root/.bash_history command.

Affected Software/OS:
'xawtv' package(s) on Debian Linux.

Solution:
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version
3.103-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xawtv packages.
