Hash: SHA1

________________________________________________________________________

                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           dump
Date:                   November 2nd, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:065

Affected versions:      None
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 In some instances, if dump is suid root, it can be used to gain root
 access.  Two exploits have been published to prove this.
________________________________________________________________________

Linux-Mandrake ships dump suid root, however both exploits do not work
under Linux-Mandrake.  The end result is a shell that is suid by the
user attempting the exploit, and not suid root which is the intended
result.
