Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2008-0005-1
Published: 2008-02-11

Rating: Minor

Updated Versions:
e2fsprogs=/conary.rpath.com@rpl:devel//1/1.37-3.3-1 
group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org@fl:1-devel//1/1.4.2-0.7-3 

References:

http://wiki.rpath.com/Advisories:rPSA-2007-0262 

Description:
    Previous versions of the e2fsprogs package are vulnerable to multiple
    integer overflows which may be exploited via specially-crafted filesystems.

    The workaround for is to not run fsck on a filesystem to which an untrusted
    user has the ability to directly modify filesystem metadata. This is most
    commonly an issue when using a virtualization solution in which the root
    user for the guest OS is not trusted, and can convince the host's root user
    to run fsck on the guests's filesystem. Foresight Linux neither enables nor
    supports any form of virtualization in the default install.
