Description Mark J. Cox 2003-03-05 06:13:27 EST
The file utility before version 3.41 contains a buffer overflow vulnerability in the ELF parsing routines. This can allow an attacker to create a carefully crafted binary that can cause arbitrary code to run if a victim runs the 'file' command on the binary. http://www.idefense.com/advisory/03.04.03.txt CAN-2003-0102

This is the Advanced Products tracking bug and therefore is not a duplicate of 85297. Reopening.

NEEDINFO so I don't have to stare at an open and pending (process imho) bug.

Wasn't this fixed in the latest errata for 2.1AS too?
