Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cpio (MDKSA-2005:032-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

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 allow 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.

Solution :

Update the affected cpio package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
