                        SuSE Security Announcement

        Package: make-3.77-44 and earlier
        Date:    Wed Feb  9 17:28:43 CET 2000

        Affected SuSE versions: 6.1, 6.3
        Vulnerability Type:     locale root compromise
              SuSE default package:   no
              Other affected systems: all linux systems using make
______________________________________________________________________________

A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update it as soon as possible or disable the service if you are using
this software on your SuSE Linux installation(s).

Other Linux distributions or operating systems might be affected as
well, please contact your vendor for information about this issue.

Please note that we provide this information on an "as-is" basis only.
There is no warranty whatsoever and no liability for any direct, indirect or
incidental damage arising from this information or the installation of
the update package.
_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Description

  If GNU make is fed with Makefiles via stdin it creates temporary files
  in /tmp without checking for links.

2. Impact

  A malicous user could execute commands with the privileges of the user
  executing make.
  This security hole could lead to local root compromise if root passes
  Makefiles to make through stdin.

3. Solution

  Update the package from our FTP server.
