----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: GNOME VFS updates address extfs vulnerability
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:373-01
Issue date: 2004-08-04
Updated on: 2004-08-04
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: gnome-vfs gnome-vfs2 extfs
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0494
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated GNOME VFS packages that remove potential extfs-related vulnerabilities are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64

3. Problem description:

GNOME VFS is the GNOME virtual file system. It provides a modular architecture and ships with several modules that implement support for file systems, HTTP, FTP, and others. The extfs backends make it possible to implement file systems for GNOME VFS using scripts.

Flaws have been found in several of the GNOME VFS extfs backend scripts. Red Hat Enterprise Linux ships with vulnerable scripts, but they are not used by default. An attacker who is able to influence a user to open a specially-crafted URI using gnome-vfs could perform actions as that user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0494 to this issue.

Users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux should upgrade to these updated packages, which remove these unused scripts.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
