CAN-2003-0056 buffer overflow in slocate
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:41:41 EDT
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
