Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA054] DSA-054-1 cron

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-054-1 cron

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A recent (fall 2000) security fix to cron introduced an error in giving
up rights before invoking the editor. This was discovered by Sebastian
Krahmer from SuSE. A malicious user could easily gain root access.

This has been fixed in version 3.0pl1-57.3 (or 3.0pl1-67 for unstable).
No exploits are known to exist, but we recommend that you upgrade your
cron packages immediately.
