Summary

The remote host is missing an update to lm-sensors announced via advisory DSA 814-1. Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that a script of lm-sensors, utilities to read temperature/voltage/fan sensors, creates a temporary file with a predictable filename, leaving it vulnerable for a symlink attack. The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 2.9.1-1sarge2. For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.9.1-7. We recommend that you upgrade your lm-sensors package. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20814-1
