Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-10-19 06:23:56 EDT
On September 10th 2004, Trustix shared some temporary file
vulnerabilities with vendor-sec.  After some refinement these were
made public on Sep30.  These are minor issues (impact: LOW) and
therefore should be fixed in future updates, but don't deserve their
own security advisory.

Temporary file vulnerability in catchsegv.  Patch attached.

                Affects: RHEL2.1
                Probably Affects: RHEL3

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-19 08:31:56 EDT
glibcbug script is gone from CVS glibc (for 9 months already),
I'll make sure it disappears from RHEL2.1 and RHEL3 too.
For catchsegv a different patch has been committed upstream,
the remaining changes are incorrect.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-22 13:16:47 EDT
glibcbug removed and catchsegv fixed in glibc-2.3.2-95.30.
