Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-464: mc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mc packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated mc package that resolves several shell escape security issues is
now available.

Midnight Commander (mc) is a visual shell much like a file manager.

Shell escape bugs have been discovered in several of the mc vfs backend
scripts. A possible hacker who is able to influence a victim to open a
specially-crafted URI using mc could execute arbitrary commands as the
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0494 to this issue.

Users of mc should upgrade to this updated package which contains
backported patches and is not vulnerable to this issue.
