Mandrake: Updated cpio packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A vulnerability in cpio was discovered where cpio would create world- writeable files when used in -o/--create mode and giving an output file (with -O). This would allow any user to modify the created cpio archive. The updated packages have been patched so that cpio now respects the current umask setting of the user.
