Subject: Security Update: [CSSA-2002-043.0] Linux: chfn (util-linux) temp file race vulnerability



			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: chfn (util-linux) temp file race vulnerability 
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-043.0
Issue date: 		2002 October 29
Cross reference:

1. Problem Description

	The util-linux package vulnerable to privilege escalation when the
	"ptmptmp" file is not removed properly when using "chfn" utility.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to util-linux-2.11l-5.1.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to util-linux-2.11l-5.1.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Server		prior to util-linux-2.11l-5.1.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Workstation	prior to util-linux-2.11l-5.1.i386.rpm

3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
