Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2004-0053

Package name:      cyrus-sasl
Summary:           Insecure handling of environment variable

Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.0

Package description:
  The cyrus-sasl package contains the Cyrus implementation of SASL.
  SASL is the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for
  adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.

Problem description:
  Kurt Lieber  reported that libsasl honors the
  environment variable SASL_PATH blindly, allowing a local user to compile a
  "library" locally that is executed with the EID of SASL.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
  assigned the name CAN-2004-0884 to this issue.

  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
