I'm suspecting that this CVE is already fixed by Richard W.M. Jones.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2009-03-03 18:39:53 UTC
Yes, you're right.  When I went looking I didn't find the other issue.  Thanks, and sorry for the noise.

Comment 5 Vincent Danen 2009-03-13 22:21:44 UTC
Created attachment 335174 [details]
patch from Debian to fully correct the issue

Actually, it just came to my attention that this is more than just an absolute path traversal issue, and that using "../" works as well, which the patch noted in bug #487132 fails to address.

I'm going to attach the patch that Debian is planning to use, although updating to 3.0 will also correct the issue.

Comment 6 Peter Lemenkov 2009-03-14 07:53:19 UTC
Ok, I'm updating to 3.0.0
