Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
Package name: Mesa Date: March 13th, 2001 Advisory ID: MDKSA-2001:029 Affected versions: 7.2
Ben Collins identified a temporary file race in the Utah-glx component of the Mesa package which affects Linux-Mandrake 7.2. The /tmp/glxmemory file is created by Utah-glx and because it is not created securely could be used in a symlink attack which allows files to be overwritten the next time the X server is started.
Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the
integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the
Linux-Mandrake 7.2: d75f85f30af6c8fb57938b76323067ce 7.2/RPMS/Mesa-3.3-14.1mdk.i586.rpm 1a8bddaf0f26c5d1caa5c3af44d1c108 7.2/RPMS/Mesa-common-3.3-14.1mdk.i586.rpm ffd886a66f866faaf9ae0b7402644cde 7.2/RPMS/Mesa-common-devel-3.3-14.1mdk.i586.rpm c9f32276cd54d8772c31afba619bf856 7.2/RPMS/Mesa-demos-3.3-14.1mdk.i586.rpm 593a5bb2a4d51460727f3affb0a78fdd 7.2/SRPMS/Mesa-3.3-14.1mdk.src.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:
Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:
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.
