-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory _______________________________________________________________________ Package name: cpio Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:032-1 Date: February 11th, 2005 Original Advisory Date: February 10th, 2005 Affected versions: 10.1 ______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: A vulnerability in cpio was discovered where cpio would create world- writeable files when used in -o/--create mode and giving an output file (with -O). This would allow any user to modify the created cpio archive. The updated packages have been patched so that cpio now respects the current umask setting of the user. Update: The updated cpio packages for 10.1, while they would install with urpmi on the commandline, would not install via rpmdrake. The updated packages correct that. _______________________________________________________________________ References: ______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandrakelinux 10.1: a298815e1095a9d67216de7a03b165fd 10.1/RPMS/cpio-2.5-4.2.101mdk.i586.rpm 803ce098932b51a8c6e67d240b8de436 10.1/SRPMS/cpio-2.5-4.2.101mdk.src.rpm Mandrakelinux 10.1/X86_64: 294436bfdb9d38edf1e8435ab2875a6a x86_64/10.1/RPMS/cpio-2.5-4.2.101mdk.x86_64.rpm 803ce098932b51a8c6e67d240b8de436 x86_64/10.1/SRPMS/cpio-2.5-4.2.101mdk.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi.
