Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-14 16:44:24 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #154920 +++

crontab in Vixie cron 4.1, when running with the -e option, allows local users
to read the cron files of other users by changing the file being edited to a
symlink.  NOTE: there is insufficient information to know whether this is a
duplicate of CVE-2001-0235.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-04-14 20:27:10 EDT
This is fixed with vixie-cron-4.1-33_FC3, FC-3 update #320 .
Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-04-21 19:04:37 EDT
No errata covers the FC-3 update #320 - this problem is fixed with
and in
FC4's vixie-cron-4.1-33
