Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-03-11 12:57:55 UTC
Dpkg upstream has recently addressed:
  [1] http://www.debian.org/security/2010/dsa-2011

 one path traversal issue by unpacking source packages.
More issue details from [1]:

William Grant discovered that the dpkg-source component
of dpkg, the low-level infrastructure for handling the
installation and removal of Debian software packages, is
vulnerable to path traversal attacks. A specially crafted
Debian source package can lead to file modification outside
of the destination directory when extracting the package
content.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2010-03-11 12:59:53 UTC
This issue affects the version of the dpkg package, as present
in Rawhide (older Fedora 11 and Fedora 12 rpm packages installable
from Koji are also affected).
