User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The update to correct CVE-2007-1536 (MDKSA-2007:067), a buffer overflow in the file_printf() function, introduced a new integer overflow as reported by Colin Percival. This flaw, if an atacker could trick a user into running file on a specially crafted file, could possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running file (CVE-2007-2799). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

 Problem Description:
 
 The update to correct CVE-2007-1536 (MDKSA-2007:067), a buffer overflow
 in the file_printf() function, introduced a new integer overflow as
 reported by Colin Percival.  This flaw, if an atacker could trick a
 user into running file on a specially crafted file, could possibly
 lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
 user running file (CVE-2007-2799).
 
 As well, in file 4.20, flawed regular expressions to identify OS/2
 REXX files could lead to a denial of service via CPU consumption
 (CVE-2007-2026).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
