Description

Rxvt 2.6.1/2.6.2 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2001-1077. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/2878/info

Rxvt is a color VT102 terminal emulator for X intended as an xterm(1) replacement.

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in rxvt.

The error occurs when certain command line options with long arguments are passed to rxvt.

Because rxvt is installed setgid 'utmp' by some system configurations, it may be possible for local users to execute arbitrary code/commands with these privileges.
