-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A vulnerability in one of the scripts used by the unix security tool
Tiger has been discovered and a patch issued.
Tiger is a public domain package developed and maintained by Texas A&M
University, used for checking security problems on a Unix system. Due
to lack of checking, a local user can craft a command in such a way
that he may have the command executed with the privileges of the
process running Tiger (usually root).
While no known compromises have occurred due to this vulnerability,
it is recommended that the patch be applied if you run tiger.
Patches for tiger have been issued and are available at
Thanks to Michel Miqueu and Philippe Bourgeois of CERT-IST for
reporting the problem.
