Description Josh Bressers 2005-02-15 13:25:11 EST
The glibcbug script in glibc 2.3.4 and earlier allows local users to overwrite
arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files, a different
vulnerability than CAN-2004-0968.

This issue should also affect RHEL2.1
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-02-15 13:39:02 EST
It should also affect RHEL3
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2005-02-16 02:45:46 EST
Hi Josh,

I still don't understand how this affects mc since it's a glibc bug.

Any further info?
Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2005-02-16 06:27:48 EST
Sorry, wrong component.  I'm fixing it.
Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2005-02-16 14:26:13 EST
It seems this issue only affects RHEL2.1.
Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2005-03-01 07:20:25 EST
And for RHEL2.1 it should be fixed in glibc-2.2.4-32.19.
