Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN75-1 : cpio vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
cpio vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote package "cpio" is missing a security patch.

Description :

Recently it was discovered that cpio created world-writeable files
when used in -o/--create mode with giving an output file (with -O).
This permited any user to modify the created cpio archives. Now cpio
respects the current umask setting of the user.

Note: This vulnerability has already been fixed in a very old version
of cpio, but the fix was never ported to the current version.
Therefore the CAN number was assigned to the year 1999.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- cpio-2.5-1.1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)



Network Security Threat Level: High
