Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:032-1: cpio

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cpio package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:032-1 (cpio).



A vulnerability in cpio was discovered where cpio would create world- writeable
files when used in -o/--create mode and giving an output file (with -O). This
would permit any user to modify the created cpio archive. The updated packages
have been patched so that cpio now respects the current umask setting of the
user.

Update:

The updated cpio packages for 10.1, while they would install with urpmi on the
commandline, would not install via rpmdrake. The updated packages correct that.
