RHSA-2005-080: cpio

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cpio packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated cpio package that fixes a umask bug and supports large files
(>2GB) is now available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team

GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive.

It was discovered that cpio uses a 0 umask when creating files using the -O
(archive) option. This creates output files with mode 0666 (all can read
and write) regardless of the user's umask setting. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-1999-1572 to this issue.

All users of cpio should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves
this issue, and adds support for large files (> 2GB).
