TurboLinux Security Announcement


Package: traceroute-1.4a5 and earlier
Date: Tuesday October 17 11:30 PDT 2000

Affected TurboLinux versions: 6.0.5 and earlier
TurboLinux Advisory ID#: TLSA2000023-1

___________________________________________________________________________

A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update the package in your installation as soon as possible.
___________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Summary

There is a bug in the traceroute command that can possibly be use
by local users to obtain super user privilege. It is suggested
to upgrade your traceroute to the version provided.

2. Impact

Possibility for regular user gaining root access on a machine.

3. Solution

Update the package from our ftp server by running the following command:

rpm -Uvh --nodeps --Force ftp_path_to_filename

Where ftp_path_to_filename is the following:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/traceroute-1.4a7-2.i386.rpm

The source RPM can be downloaded here:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/traceroute-1.4a7-2.src.rpm

**Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
and install the SRPM. Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
THE SECURITY HOLE.

Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:

MD5 sum Package Name
