Package : cpio
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-1111 CAN-2005-1229
Debian Bug : 306693 305372

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in cpio, a program to manage
archives of files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-1111

Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in setting the file
permissions of files extracted from cpio archives. A local
attacker with write access to the target directory could exploit
this to alter the permissions of arbitrary files the extracting
user has write permissions for.

CAN-2005-1229

Imran Ghory discovered that cpio does not sanitise the path of
extracted files even if the --no-absolute-filenames option was
specified. This can be exploited to install files in arbitrary
locations where the extracting user has write permissions to.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.2-39woody2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5-1.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your cpio package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
