Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-28 16:43:51 EDT
Directory traversal vulnerability in cpio 2.6 and earlier allows remote
attackers to write to arbitrary directories via a .. (dot dot) in a cpio file.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-04-28 16:44:12 EDT
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3

fix candidate

Replace option --no-absolute-filenames	with --absolute-filenames
Not allow insecure filenames like "/tmp/../../etc/cron/..." ( strip

but there is a still problem with symlinks in cpio
Comment 4 Mark J. Cox 2005-10-26 10:29:34 EDT
This is a funtionality change to fix something that is defined, documented
behaviour.  Therefore a security team review on 20051026 decided this should be
marked as WONTFIX
