Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52110
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:377
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:377.

The sharutils package contains a set of tools for encoding and decoding
packages of files in binary or text format.

A stack based overflow bug was found in the way shar handles the -o option.
If a user can be tricked into running a specially crafted command, it could
lead to arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1772 to this issue.
Please note that this issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

Two buffer overflow bugs were found in sharutils. If an attacker can place
a malicious 'wc' command on a victim's machine, or trick a victim into
running a specially crafted command, it could lead to arbitrary code
execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1773 to this issue.

A bug was found in the way unshar creates temporary files. A local user
could use symlinks to overwrite arbitrary files the victim running unshar
has write access to. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0990 to this issue.

All users of sharutils should upgrade to this updated package, which
includes backported fixes to correct these issues.
