Date:  Thu, 4 May 2006 14:12:16 -0400

--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2006-510 2006-05-04 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 5 Name : busybox Version : 1.01 Release : 3.fc5 Summary : Statically linked binary providing simplified versions of system commands Description : Busybox is a single binary which includes versions of a large number of system commands, including a shell. This package can be very useful for recovering from certain types of system failures, particularly those involving broken shared libraries. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: The BusyBox passwd command does not use a proper salt when generating passwords. This would create an instance where a brute force attack could take very little time. This problem is fixed in busybox-1.01-3.fc5. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Thu May 4 2006 Ivana Varekova <> 1:1.01-3.fc5 - fix CVE-2006-1058 - BusyBox passwd command fails to generate password with salt (#187386) --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: df1508572569c949e3a0838a5620f11d7ba3bda6 SRPMS/busybox-1.01-3.fc5.src.rpm 504d98292ac4b2f28c1a9cbbf646e707581262bc ppc/busybox-1.01-3.fc5.ppc.rpm e741d38e0992c7307505de8fd439a5162d5b546a ppc/busybox-anaconda-1.01-3.fc5.ppc.rpm 856f2032ef5d247edb715fed46e28ea0d3ea190c ppc/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.01-3.fc5.ppc.rpm 975026e30e21c93f81c09c51764f39522225798c x86_64/busybox-1.01-3.fc5.x86_64.rpm 7d2631972295094a6b2bc5357b4a92b32aeb3d09 x86_64/busybox-anaconda-1.01-3.fc5.x86_64.rpm 562bb6ed70583946f9df2f45cbbdca08f839047b x86_64/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.01-3.fc5.x86_64.rpm a8a6faafc76fc98d4bb2fcc758851e260a984613 i386/busybox-1.01-3.fc5.i386.rpm 62545a756fb36dbd77126cdd55f1d47ae0c07fdf i386/busybox-anaconda-1.01-3.fc5.i386.rpm d46de403268d8e5ddb8af85c41902bf6fa58de0a i386/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.01-3.fc5.i386.rpm This update can be installed with the 'yum' update program.
