RHSA-2003-016: fileutils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the fileutils packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated fileutils packages are available which fix a race condition in
recursive remove and move commands.

The fileutils package includes a number of GNU versions of common and
popular file management utilities.

A race condition in recursive use of rm and mv commands in fileutils 4.1
and earlier could permit local users to delete files and directories as the
user running fileutils if the user has write access to part of the tree
being moved or deleted.

In addition, a bug in the way that the chown command parses --from options
has also been fixed in these packages, bringing the command into Linux
Standard Base (LSB) compliance.

Users of Red Hat Linux Advanced Server should install the upgraded
fileutils packages which contain patches to correct these issues.
