<h2>DTSA-26-1</h2>
<dl>
<dt>Date Reported:</dt>
<dd>December 5th, 2005</dd>
<dt>Affected Package:</dt>
<dd><a href='http://packages.debian.org/src:trackballs'>trackballs</a></dd>
<dt>Vulnerability:</dt>
<dd>symlink attack</dd>
<dt>Problem-Scope:</dt>
<dd>remote/local</dd>
<dt>Debian-specific:</dt>
<dd>No<br></dd>
<dt>CVE:</dt>
<dd>
None
<br></dd>
<br><dt>More information:</dt>
<dd>Ulf Harnhammar notices that that trackballs follows symlinks when running as&nbsp;<br>
gid games. It writes to files such as $HOME/.trackballs/[USERNAME].gmr and&nbsp;<br>
$HOME/.trackballs/settings without checking if they are symlinks somewhere&nbsp;<br>
else. This can be abused for overwriting or creating files wherever the games&nbsp;<br>
group is allowed to do so.&nbsp;<br>
</dd>
<br><dt>For the testing distribution (etch) this is fixed in version 1.1.1-0.0etch1</dt>
<dt>For the unstable distribution (sid) this is fixed in version 1.1.1-1</dt>
<br><dt>This upgrade is recommended if you use trackballs.<dt>
<br><dt>If you have the secure testing lines in your sources.list, you can update by running this command as root:</dt>
<dd>apt-get update && apt-get upgrade</dd>
<br>
<br>
<dt>To use the Debian testing security archive, add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:<dt>
