--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2006-511 2006-05-04 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 4 Name : busybox Version : 1.00 Release : 5.fc4 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-1.00-5.fc4. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Thu May 4 2006 Ivana Varekova <> - 1.00-5.fc4 - fix CVE-2006-1058 - BusyBox passwd command fails to generate password with salt (#187386) * Wed May 11 2005 Ivana Varekova <> - 1.00-5 - add debug files to debug_package --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: ee47688b9585066db30b812f687c13104a37287f SRPMS/busybox-1.00-5.fc4.src.rpm 405afe850ed3b1c5725632781b921d759035228a ppc/busybox-1.00-5.fc4.ppc.rpm 5142636e20492d2b122d15f64fea845daf9d801c ppc/busybox-anaconda-1.00-5.fc4.ppc.rpm 2021899a3a4c991e6cf73d8ab7ad25fa518df155 ppc/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.00-5.fc4.ppc.rpm 1ad9c5d5a48f8544a42bed7298a242df565d6de5 x86_64/busybox-1.00-5.fc4.x86_64.rpm 5400cd9dce94e42f78845c95bf57e08312c6f61d x86_64/busybox-anaconda-1.00-5.fc4.x86_64.rpm 0755c1e0670e6ebad62999c25727eadda6322e44 x86_64/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.00-5.fc4.x86_64.rpm dad52b5f072ca10de348508350145cffc66b7e7b i386/busybox-1.00-5.fc4.i386.rpm 4c73624a3d5426261cb626734071575258765e3a i386/busybox-anaconda-1.00-5.fc4.i386.rpm bdbe33bacd443aed302b5242dbb72103c7e1ad6f i386/debug/busybox-debuginfo-1.00-5.fc4.i386.rpm This update can be installed with the 'yum' update program.
