Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-04-10 13:33:31 UTC
Jann Horn discovered that the source package integrity verification in
dpkg-source can be bypassed via a specially crafted Debian source
control file (.dsc). Note that this flaw only affects extraction of
local Debian source packages via dpkg-source but not the installation of
packages from the Debian archive.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.16.16. This update also includes non-security changes
previously scheduled for the next wheezy point release. See the Debian
changelog for details.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.17.25.
