Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:041 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: slocate security update 2004-01-21 05:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-21 13:47:28 UTC
Buffer overflow in secure locate (slocate) before 2.7 allows
local users to execute arbitrary code with slocate privileges 
via a long (1) -c or (2) -r command line argument.

Note fixed since 2.6-7 therefore only affects RHEL2.1
