Posted on: 04/19/2004 04:07 PM

Updated utempter packages are available for Mandrakelinux
_______________________________________________________________________

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: utempter
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:031
Date: April 19th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Steve Grubb discovered two potential issues in the utempter program:

1) If the path to the device contained /../ or /./ or //, the program was not exiting as it should. It would be possible to use something like /dev/../tmp/tty0, and then if /tmp/tty0 were deleted and symlinked to another important file, programs that have root privileges that do no further validation can then overwrite whatever the symlink pointed to.

2) Several calls to strncpy without a manual termination of the string. This would most likely crash utempter.

The updated packages are patched to correct these problems.
