Description e.mergl 1999-10-12 21:56:24 UTC
After installation I started netconfig. I entered the data as I did many times before in the same dialog for RH6.0 on the same machine. Pressing OK results in: Segmentation Fault (core dumped).

netconfig, netconf, or netcfg? I'm sure this is too confusing, but there is a difference between the three.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 21:13:59 UTC
I'm closing this because we don't really know which tool you meant. Please feel free to reopen this with the information we requested. Thanks.

Probably the same as bug 7945, a coredump in pump
Comment 4 apendleton 2000-03-07 20:15:59 UTC
/usr/sbin/netconfig core dumps with a Segmentation Fault in strcpy() when determining the host and domain name. While this program is NOT SUID root by default it is executable by any user, and is owned by root, and I suppose someone smarter than me could potentially exploit this to execute code by overwriting the stack. Without some sort of greater knowledge of how this program works, I couldn't really say whether that's a true statement or not.

This sounds like the pump error.
