Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0005-1
Published: 2007-03-29

Rating: Minor

Updated Versions:
slocate=/conary.rpath.com () rpl:devel//foresight.rpath.org () fl:1-devel//1/3.1-8.1
     group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org () fl:1-devel//1/1.1-0.11-3


     Previous versions of the slocate package were vulnerable to an 
information-disclosure vulnerability. Slocate did not properly manage 
database entries that specify names of files in protected directories. 
Thus, for example, a user could see via slocate the names of files in a 
directory chmodded 711.
