Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:073
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:073.

GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive.

It was discovered that cpio uses a 0 umask when creating files using the -O
(archive) option. This creates output files with mode 0666 (all can read
and write) regardless of the user's umask setting. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-1999-1572 to this issue.

Users of cpio should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves
this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Mike O'Connor for bringing this issue to our
attention.
