Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2005:476 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: openssl security update 2005-06-01 04:00:00 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-19 16:06:47 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 der_chop script.  Patch attached. 
However der_chop isn't a useful script and is deprecated.  Removing
der_chop script is a valid solution to this issue.

Proposed patch is attachment 105431 [details].

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2005-01-26 14:44:07 UTC
We're quite happy to have these fixed in future updates as required
and not to issue a RHSA especially for this issue.

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2005-01-26 14:56:25 UTC
Of course, but is it worth to release it in U7 update? I'd rather wait
for another problem to appear and then include it.

Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2005-06-01 13:32:43 UTC
