Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2001:148 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Red Hat Linux 7.1 Korean installation program creates files with bad umask 2001-11-02 05:00:00 UTC

Description Xavier Cho 2001-11-02 06:32:53 UTC
Files listed below in RedHat 7.1k distribution have write permission 
to everyone. I suppose this bug could be major security hole and should be
fixed immediately. Thanks.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 06:39:32 UTC
Exactly which kernel do you have installed?

Comment 2 Xavier Cho 2001-11-02 06:43:37 UTC
 I've upgraded my system to kernel 2.4.9 with up2date right 
after the installation.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 06:50:35 UTC
Never mind; I see that 7.1k ships with 2.4.3-12 as the default install kernel.

Comment 4 Kwan-hong, Lee 2001-11-02 09:28:40 UTC
Hm? Is there any relation that kernel and permission?

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 15:30:06 UTC

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-29 01:36:40 UTC
Fixed with an updates disk for 7.1k and an updated redhat-release package which
will make the necessary changes.
