Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0048-1 Published: 2007-08-23

Rating: Major

Updated Versions:

    xterm=/conary.rpath.com at rpl:devel//1/202-5.3-1     group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org@fl:1-devel//1/1.3.2-0.9-2

References:

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2797     https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-1396

Description:

    Previous versions of the xterm package assigned incorrect ownership and     write permissions to pseudo-terminal devices, permitting local users to     direct output to other users' xterm sessions.     

    Due to xterm's extensive internal processing of escape sequences, this     also permits unauthorized modification of xterm session behavior. - ---
