Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-19 10:25:55 EST
A buffer overflow has been found in Midnight Commander's virtual
filesystem code. Specifically, a stack-based buffer overflow in
vfs_s_resolve_symlink of vfs/direntry.c allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code during symlink conversion.

Errata RHSA-2004:034 in progress
Comment 1 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-01-29 07:07:36 EST
This is in ERRATA and can be closed as such.

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2004-01-29 07:46:23 EST
Yeah, RHSA-2004:034 was released on the 21st:
Comment 3 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-01-30 05:27:08 EST
And what about Fedora Core (bug #114540)? A test update was made
available on the 19th, but no announcement was made on either the test
list, the main list or the devel list.

This update should be announced and moved to the main tree.

While I am at it let me shamelessly plug the one line fix from bug
#112644. Please get it in testing. I've been using it for over a month
without any problem.
