-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Low: cpio security and bug fix update Advisory ID: RHSA-2007:0245-02 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-0245.html Issue date: 2007-05-01 Updated on: 2007-05-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Keywords: 64bit CVE Names: CVE-2005-4268 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary: An updated cpio package that fixes a security issue and various bugs is now available. This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 3. Problem description: GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive. A buffer overflow was found in cpio on 64-bit platforms. By tricking a user into adding a specially crafted large file to a cpio archive, a local attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the target user's privileges. (CVE-2005-4268) This erratum also addresses the following bugs: * cpio did not set exit codes appropriately. * cpio did not create a ram disk properly. All users of cpio are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported fixes to correct these issues. 4.
