+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #114923 +++

CAN-2003-0618 was reported 2003Jul29 to Debian. You can test for the
existance of files even if you don't have permission to do so by using
the suidperl command.

        $ su
        # mkdir ~root/delme; chmod 700 ~root/delme;touch ~root/delme/1
        # exit
        $ suidperl ~root/delme/1
        Script is not setuid/setgid in suidperl
        $ suidperl ~root/delme/2
        Can't open perl script "/root/delme/2": No such file ...


        Affects: 2.1AS 2.1ES 2.1AW 2.1WS (5.6.1) 
        Affects: 3AS 3ES 3WS (5.8.0) 

Debian released an errata for this issue in Feb 2004.

Actually this doesn't affect RHEL3 because the setuid perl package was
not shipped.

I did some verification work on this one.  This issue does affect RHEL3.  We may
not have shipped perl-suidperl in the past, we do now.

-- Additional comment from jvdias@redhat.com on 2006-04-21 21:24 EST --
fixed with perl-5.6.1-38.EL2_1

-- Additional comment from rnorwood@redhat.com on 2006-10-01 19:33 EST --
assigning to rnorwood@redhat.com

-- Additional comment from mjc@redhat.com on 2007-07-20 07:47 EST --
that version isn't shipped yet, opening and marking MODIFIED

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-05-30 16:05:51 UTC
