CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : slocate
SUMMARY   : Arbitrary code execution with 'slocate' privileges
DATE      : 2001-01-04 16:18:00
ID        : CLA-2001:369
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.0, 4.0es, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, prg gráficos, ecommerce, 5.1, 6.0

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 "slocate" is a program which catalogues existing files and allows for
 a quick lookup later.
 There is a vulnerability present in previous versions. By giving it a
 crafted database, an attacker could make slocate execute arbitrary
 code as the "slocate" user.
 Additionally, a bug which caused slocate to segfault with large
 pathnames was fixed.


SOLUTION
 All users should upgrade the slocate package.

 Thanks to zorgon, Michel Kaempf and the author, Kevin Lindsay.
