Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:016 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Low: fileutils security update 2003-01-21 05:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-01-21 13:58:50 UTC
A race condition in recursive use of 'rm' and 'mv' in fileutils 4.1 and
earlier could allow local users to delete files and directories as the user
running fileutils if the user has write access to part of the tree being
moved or deleted.

Red Hat Linux Advanced Server shipped with versions of fileutils that are
vulnerable to this issue.
