rPath Security Advisory: 2006-0198-1
Published: 2006-10-26
Products: rPath Linux 1
Rating: Minor
Exposure Level Classification:
    Indirect User Deterministic Unauthorized Access
Updated Versions:
    screen=/conary.rpath.com () rpl:devel//1/4.0.3-0.1-1

    https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-734

Description:
    In previous versions of the screen package, the screen program had
    a bug which is known to make screen vulnerable to a minor denial of
    service attack in which the screen program would crash if presented
    with particular output.  It is possible that this attack could also
    allow a user-complicit attacker to assume the privileges of the
    complicit user.  The screen program is not setuid in rPath Linux,
    so any attack is limited to the complicit user.
