Updated cpio packages are available for Mandrakelinux 10.1
Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
Package name: cpio
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:032-1
Date: February 11th, 2005
Original Advisory Date: February 10th, 2005
Affected versions: 10.1
A vulnerability in cpio was discovered where cpio would create world- writeable files when used in -o/--create mode and giving an output file (with -O). This would allow any user to modify the created cpio archive. The updated packages have been patched so that cpio now respects the current umask setting of the user.
The updated cpio packages for 10.1, while they would install with urpmi on the commandline, would not install via rpmdrake. The updated packages correct that.
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
All packages are signed by Mandrakesoft for security. You can obtain the GPG public key of the Mandrakelinux Security Team by executing:
gpg --recv-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu 0x22458A98
