CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : ed
SUMMARY   : Insecure temporary file handling
DATE      : 2000-12-15 11:27:00
ID        : CLA-2000:359-2
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.0, 4.0es, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0

DESCRIPTION
The "ed" editor creates temporary files in an insecure way, making it vulnerable to symlink attacks.

NOTE
The download links do the updated packages in the previous announcement (CLA-2000:359) were incorrectly pointing to PAM packages. This has now been fixed. We would like to thank Leonardo Dias for reporting the error to us.

SOLUTION
All users of the "ed" program should upgrade.
