Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory


Package name: cdrecord
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:058-1
Date: May 21st, 2003
Original Advisory Date: May 15th, 2003
Affected versions: 8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1

Problem Description:

A vulnerability in cdrecord was discovered that can be used to obtain root access because Mandrake Linux ships with the cdrecord binary suid root and sgid cdwriter.

Updated packages are provided that fix this vulnerability. You may also elect to remove the suid and sgid bits from cdrecord manually, which can be done by executing, as root:

   chmod ug-s /usr/bin/cdrecord
 

This is not required to protect yourself from this particular vulnerability, however.

Update:

Two additional format string problems were discovered by Olaf Kirch and an updated patch has been applied to fix those problems as well.
