Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gzip
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:142
Date: December 6th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The Trustix developers found some insecure temporary file creation problems in the zdiff, znew, and gzeze supplemental scripts in the gzip package. These flaws could allow local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack.

A similar problem was fixed last year (CAN-2003-0367) in which this same problem was found in znew. At that time, Mandrakesoft also used mktemp to correct the problems in gzexe. This update uses mktemp to handle temporary files in the zdiff script.
