Updated Debian 5.0: 5.0.9 released

The Debian project is pleased to announce the ninth update of its
oldstable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (codename "lenny"). This
update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the oldstable
release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems. Security
advisories were already published separately and are referenced where

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
GNU/Linux 5.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is
no need to throw away 5.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update via an
up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date
packages to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have
to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are
included in this update.

New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages
will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the
aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page)
to one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of
mirrors is available at:


Miscellaneous Bugfixes

This oldstable update adds a few important corrections to the following

Package Reason

aptitude Fix symlink attack in hierarchy editor
atop Insecure use of temporary files
base-files Update /etc/debian_version for the point release
conky Fix file overwrite vulnerability
dokuwiki RSS XSS security fix
klibc Escape ipconfig's DHCP options
linux-2.6 Several security updates and select fixes from upstream
magpierss Fix cross-site scripting vulnerability (CVE-2011-0740)
mediawiki Protect against CSS injection vulnerability
openldap Security fixes
openssl Fix CVE-2011-3210: SSL memory handling for (EC)DH ciphersuites
pmake Fix symlink attack via temporary files
sun-java6 New upstream security update
tesseract Disable xterm-based debug windows to avoid file overwrite vulnerability
tzdata New upstream version
user-mode-linux Rebuild against linux-2.6 2.6.26-27
v86d Fix CVE-2011-1070: failure to validate netlink message sender;
do not include random kernel headers in CFLAGS
vftool Fix a buffer overflow in linetoken() in parseAFM.c
xorg-server GLX: don't crash in SwapBuffers if we don't have a context

Due to the timing of this point release relative to the next update for
the stable release (Debian 6.0 "squeeze"), the versions of atop and
tzdata included in this point release are higher than the corresponding
packages currently in stable. The next stable point release is planned
for one week's time, after which the package versions in stable will
once again be higher, as expected.

We do not expect that this situation will cause any issues with upgrades
from oldstable to the stable release during this short period of time,
but please report any such issues which do arise. (See the "Contact
Information" section below).
