    ===========================================================
    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-189-1 September 29, 2005
    cpio vulnerabilities
    CAN-2005-1111, CAN-2005-1229
    ===========================================================

    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

    Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
    Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

    The following packages are affected:

    cpio

    The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
    version 2.5-1.1ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 2.5-1.1ubuntu1.1 (for
    Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
    effect the necessary changes.

    Details follow:

    Imran Ghory found a race condition in the handling of output files.
    While a file was unpacked with cpio, a local attacker with write
    permissions to the target directory could exploit this to change the
    permissions of arbitrary files of the cpio user. (CAN-2005-1111)

    Imran Ghory discovered a path traversal vulnerability. Even when the
    --no-absolute-filenames option was specified, cpio did not filter out
    ".." path components. By tricking an user into unpacking a malicious
    cpio archive, this could be exploited to install files in arbitrary
    paths with the privileges of the user calling cpio. (CAN-2005-1229)
