Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: cpio
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:116
Date: July 11th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0,
Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A race condition has been found in cpio 2.6 and earlier which allows local users to modify permissions of arbitrary files via a hard link attack on a file while it is being decompressed, whose permissions are changed by cpio after the decompression is complete. (CAN-2005-1111)

A vulnerability has been discovered in cpio that allows a malicious cpio file to extract to an arbitrary directory of the attackers choice. Cpio will extract to the path specified in the cpio file, this path can be absolute. (CAN-2005-1229)

The updated packages have been patched to address both of these issues.
