Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0203
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0203.

The unzip utility is used to list, test, or extract files from a zip archive.

A race condition was found in Unzip. Local users could use this flaw to
modify permissions of arbitrary files via a hard link attack on a file
while it was being decompressed (CVE-2005-2475)

A buffer overflow was found in Unzip command line argument handling.
If a user could be tricked into running Unzip with a specially crafted long
file name, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with that user's
privileges. (CVE-2005-4667)

As well, this update adds support for files larger than 2GB.

All users of unzip should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches that resolve these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
