CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE: cdrecord

SUMMARY : Buffer overflow, no effect on default installation
DATE : 2000-JUN-07
AFFECTED CONECTIVA VERSIONS : 5.0

DESCRIPTION
The cdrecord program has a buffer overflow problem in the processing
of the command-line argument "dev=". By exploring this vulnerability,
a local user could make the program execute arbitrary commands.
Conectiva Linux doesn't ship this binary with the SUID or SGID bits
turned on. So, the vulnerability's extent is greatly reduced, not
having the effect of granting higher user privileges.

SOLUTION
If the user needs to activate the SUID or SGID bits for the cdrecord
binary, then an upgrade is strongly recommended. The updated packages
are listed below.
