-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0060-1 Published: 2007-10-26 Rating: Trivial Updated Versions: initscripts=/ group-dist=/ References: Description: Previous versions of the initscripts package do not set sufficiently restrictive permissions on the /var/log/btmp file, leading to an information exposure issue in which users' passwords may be revealed to unprivileged users in cases when the passwords have been inadvertently entered as usernames at some login prompts. Because sshd detects the incorrect permissions on /var/log/btmp and thus does not log failed authentications (instead issuing a warning about the file permissions to /var/log/secure), and gdm does not log the user name, this vulnerability is generally limited to failed logins at the system text console or over a local serial port. - --- Copyright 2007 Foresight Linux Project Portions Copyright 2007 rPath Inc.
