                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: cpio security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2010:0145-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0145.html
Issue date:        2010-03-15

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An updated cpio package that fixes two security issues is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

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

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way cpio expanded
archive files. If a user were tricked into expanding a specially-crafted
archive, it could cause the cpio executable to crash or execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running cpio. (CVE-2010-0624)

Red Hat would like to thank Jakob Lell for responsibly reporting the
CVE-2010-0624 issue.

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way cpio expanded large
archive files. If a user expanded a specially-crafted archive, it could
cause the cpio executable to crash. This issue only affected 64-bit
platforms. (CVE-2005-4268)

Users of cpio are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

229191 - CVE-2005-4268 cpio large filesize buffer overflow
564368 - CVE-2010-0624 tar, cpio: Heap-based buffer overflow by expanding a specially-crafted archive
