Advisory ID
MDKSA-2005:032-1
Affected versions
10.1 i586 , 10.1 x86_64

Problem description

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. Update: 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.
