Subject: [SECURITY] [DSA 725-1] New ppxp packages fix local root exploit

Hash: SHA1

Debian Security Advisory DSA 725-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : ppxp
Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0392

Jens Steube discovered that ppxp, yet another PPP program, does not
release root privileges when opening potentially user supplied log
files.  This can be tricked into opening a root shell.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-6woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2001080415-11.

We recommend that you upgrade your ppxp package.
