Debian Security Advisory

DSA-343-1 skk, ddskk -- insecure temporary file

Date Reported:
08 Jul 2003
Affected Packages:
skk, ddskk
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CAN-2003-0539.
More information:

skk (Simple Kana to Kanji conversion program), does not take appropriate security precautions when creating temporary files. This bug could potentially be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Emacs and skk.

ddskk is derived from the same code, and contains the same bug.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in skk version 10.62a-4woody1 and ddskk version 11.6.rel.0-2woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in ddskk version 12.1.cvs.20030622-1, and skk will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your skk and ddskk packages.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody)
