Debian Security Advisory DSA 460-2                                        Matt Zimmerman
April 3rd, 2004

Package        : sysstat
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0108

Alan Cox discovered that the isag utility (which graphically displays
data collected by the sysstat tools), creates a temporary file without
taking proper precautions.  This vulnerability could allow a local
attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking

The update used in DSA 460-1 did not fix every occurrence of the bug.
DSA 460-2 includes a more complete fix.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 4.0.4-1woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.0.2-1.

We recommend that you update your sysstat package.
