Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2002-08-20 08:09:59 EDT
Description of Problem:

http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2000-005.html

/ is being encoded as / before display, happens in
a lot of the older errata
Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 09:26:43 EDT
we can definitely fix the data in the RHN database; what about porkchop? If we
ever refresh errata info from porkchop the changes will be lost.
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2002-08-20 09:32:29 EDT
What is in your database, / or a /?  In porkchop's database I see a / so I'm
not sure where the encoding is coming from; maybe it is only occuring on the old
erratas you imported (which didn't come from porkchop originally)?
Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 09:43:10 EDT
A vulnerability in /usr/lib/majordomo/resend and
/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper will allow execution of arbitrary
commands with elevated privileges.
Comment 4 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 09:44:43 EDT
we could run a script to fix this sort of problems, we've had them before. To be
identified if the fix is a real fix or not :-)
Comment 5 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 10:09:33 EDT
Fixed the description and solution fields. I can't find any other with this sort
of problem.
Comment 6 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 10:18:11 EDT
Fixed 7 topics and one synopsis as well.
Comment 7 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-08-20 14:57:54 EDT
