                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory


Package name:           gpm
Date:                   July 27th, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:025
Affected versions: 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1

Problem Description:

Many security flaws existed in the gpm package, which is used to control the mouse in a terminal outside of X Windows. As well, a denial of service attack via /dev/gpmctl is possible. All security issues with the gpm package have been addressed with this update.


Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this by running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using "md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".

You can download the updates directly from:
ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:

http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two above-listed mirrors.
