Description Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 18:03:19 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #125517 +++

Reported by Michael Schröder:

If a malicious creates a hardlink to a buggy s-bit program the 
system is still compromised even after a fixed version has been 
installed. The attached fix removes the s-bits from files that 
get updated.

Note that bug #125517 has a patch.

I'm not authorized to view bug #125517, sigh.

Either mail the patch to me or <> and
I will include in rpm.

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-11-04 13:17:39 UTC
I added you to the CC list of that bug; not sure if this bugzilla is set up so
that helps, but I presume it does.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-11-13 02:02:07 UTC
Patch added in rpm-4.4.3
