Description Mark J. Cox 2004-10-19 10:23:56 UTC
On September 10th 2004, Trustix shared some temporary file
vulnerabilities with vendor-sec.  After some refinement these were
made public on Sep30.  These are minor issues (impact: LOW) and
therefore should be fixed in future updates, but don't deserve their
own security advisory.

Temporary file vulnerability in catchsegv.  Patch attached.

                Affects: RHEL2.1
                Probably Affects: RHEL3

Proposed patch

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-19 12:31:56 UTC
glibcbug script is gone from CVS glibc (for 9 months already),
I'll make sure it disappears from RHEL2.1 and RHEL3 too.
For catchsegv a different patch has been committed upstream,
the remaining changes are incorrect.

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-22 17:16:47 UTC
glibcbug removed and catchsegv fixed in glibc-2.3.2-95.30.

Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2004-11-03 13:17:44 UTC
This issue is going to be RHSA-2004:586

Comment 5 John Flanagan 2004-12-20 18:14:19 UTC
