PACKAGE   : sane
SUMMARY   : Vulnerabilities in saned and in temporary files handling
DATE      : 2003-10-22 17:55:00
ID        : CLA-2003:769
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) is an interface to both local and
 networked scanners and other image acquisition devices. The sane
 package contains several scanner drivers, utilities and saned, a
 application that allows the sharing of scanners across a network.
 
 This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the sane package:
 
 - Remote vulnerabilities in saned. These vulnerabilities can be
 exploited by remote attackers to cause a denial of service or even
 execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running saned
 (which is usually root). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
 project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned[1,2,3,4,5,6] the names
 CAN-2003-0773, CAN-2003-0774, CAN-2003-0775, CAN-2003-0776,
 CAN-2003-0777 and CAN-2003-0778 to these issues.
 
 - Temporary file handling vulnerabilities (does not affect Conectiva
 Linux 9). In several sane backends (drivers), temporary files are
 created in an unsafe manner. A local attacker can exploit these
 vulnerabilities to overwrite arbitrary system or user files. The
 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the name CAN-2001-0890[7] to this issue.
 
 The Conectiva Linux 9 package (sane-1.0.9) also includes fixes for a
 bug[8] in the plustek driver which may cause hardware damage in EPSON
 1260 scanners (previous versions do not contain the driver).


SOLUTION
 All users of the sane package should upgrade.
