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.
