Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated perl-DBI package fixes security issue
Advisory ID: FLSA:178989
Issue date: 2006-03-01
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CVE-2005-0077
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

An updated perl-DBI package that fixes a temporary file flaw in
DBI::ProxyServer is now available.

DBI is a database access Application Programming Interface (API) for
the Perl programming language.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered that the DBI library
creates a temporary PID file in an insecure manner. A local user could
overwrite or create files as a different user who happens to run an
application which uses DBI::ProxyServer. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0077 to
this issue.

Users should update to this erratum package which disables the temporary
PID file unless configured.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
