A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
The following packages are affected:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.5-1.1ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
Recently it was discovered that cpio created world-writeable files
when used in -o/--create mode with giving an output file (with -O).
This allowed any user to modify the created cpio archives. Now cpio
respects the current umask setting of the user.
Note: This vulnerability has already been fixed in a very old version
of cpio, but the fix was never ported to the current version.
Therefore the CAN number was assigned to the year 1999.
