                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated unzip packages fix trojan vulnerability
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2003:199-02
Issue date:        2003-07-01
Updated on:        2003-08-15
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          unzip control characters
Cross references:  
Obsoletes:         RHSA-2002:096
CVE Names:         CAN-2003-0282
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

Updated unzip packages resolving a vulnerability allowing arbitrary files
to be overwritten are now available.

[Updated 15 August 2003]
Ben Laurie found that the original patch to fix this issue missed a case
where the path component included a quoted slash.  These updated packages
contain a new patch that corrects this issue.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386
Red Hat Linux 7.1 for iSeries (64 bit) - ppc
Red Hat Linux 7.1 for pSeries (64 bit) - ppc
Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 8.0 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

The unzip utility is used for manipulating archives, which are multiple
files stored inside of a single file.

A vulnerabilitiy in unzip version 5.50 and earlier allows attackers to
overwrite arbitrary files during archive extraction by placing invalid
(non-printable) characters between two "." characters.  These non-printable
characters are filtered, resulting in a ".." sequence.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2003-0282 to this issue.

This erratum includes a patch ensuring that non-printable characters do not
make it possible for a malicious .zip file to write to parent directories
unless the "-:" command line parameter is specified.

Users of unzip are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which are
not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
