Summary: An updated shadow-utils package that fixes a security issue and several 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 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 3. Problem description: The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, as well as programs for managing user and group accounts. A flaw was found in the useradd tool in shadow-utils. A new user's mailbox, when created, could have random permissions for a short period. This could allow a local attacker to read or modify the mailbox.
