Fedora Legacy Test Update Notification
FEDORALEGACY-2005-2404
Bugzilla https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=2404
2005-03-07
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : less
Versions    : rh9: less-378-7.2.legacy
Summary     : A text file browser similar to more, but with additional
              capabilities.
Description :
The less utility is a text file browser that resembles more, but has
more capabilities. Less allows you to move backwards in the file as
well as forwards. Since less does not have to read the entire input
file before it starts, less starts up more quickly than text editors.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

An updated less package that fixes segmentation fault when viewing
binary files is now available.

The less utility is a text file browser that resembles more, but has
extended capabilities.

Victor Ashik discovered a heap based buffer overflow in less, caused by
a patch added to the less package in Red Hat Linux 9. An attacker could
construct a carefully crafted file that could cause less to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2005-0086 to this issue.

All users of the less package should upgrade to this updated package,
which resolves this issue.
