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.
Please see this url for more information:
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1
It should also affect RHEL3
I still don't understand how this affects mc since it's a glibc bug.
Any further info?
Sorry, wrong component. I'm fixing it.
It seems this issue only affects RHEL2.1.
And for RHEL2.1 it should be fixed in glibc-2.2.4-32.19.
