Description Josh Bressers 2005-02-15 13:40:06 EST
*** This bug has been split off bug 148800 ***

------- Original comment by Josh Bressers (Security Response Team) on 2005.02.15

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 FC2
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2005-02-15 15:42:48 EST
This is fixed in 2.3.3-71 and above for FC3/RHEL4, since 2.3.3-27.1
in FC2, since 2.3.2-95.29 in RHEL3 (i.e. already in U4) and newly in
2.2.4-32.19 for AS2.1.
In all cases glibcbug script has been removed and catchsegv fixed.

This means the only distro that has the fix not yet released as part of an errata
is AS2.1, which is covered by #140068.
