Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51101
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:041
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:041.

Slocate is a security-enhanced version of locate, designed to find files on
a system via a central database.

Patrik Hornik discovered a vulnerability in Slocate versions up to and
including 2.7 where a carefully crafted database could overflow a
heap-based buffer. A local user could exploit this vulnerability to gain
slocate group privileges and then read the entire slocate database. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2003-0848 to this issue.

Users of Slocate should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain
Slocate version 2.7 with the addition of a patch from Kevin Lindsay that
causes slocate to drop privileges before reading a user-supplied database.

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 these packages also fix a buffer overflow
that affected unpatched versions of Slocate prior to 2.7. This
vulnerability could also allow a local user to gain slocate group
privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0056 to this issue.
