Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0143 :

An updated cpio package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way cpio expanded archive files. If a user were tricked into expanding a specially crafted archive, it could cause the cpio executable to crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running cpio. (CVE-2010-0624)

Red Hat would like to thank Jakob Lell for responsibly reporting this issue.

Users of cpio are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
