===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-75-1   February 04, 2005
cpio vulnerability
CAN-1999-1572
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

cpio

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.

Details follow:

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.
