[SECURITY] Fedora Core 4 Update: busybox-1.00-5.fc4



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-511
2006-05-04
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : busybox
Version     : 1.00                      
Release     : 5.fc4                  
Summary     : Statically linked binary providing simplified versions of system commands
Description :
Busybox is a single binary which includes versions of a large number
of system commands, including a shell.  This package can be very
useful for recovering from certain types of system failures,
particularly those involving broken shared libraries.

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

The BusyBox passwd command does not use a proper salt when
generating passwords. This would create an instance where a
brute force attack could take very little time.
This problem is fixed in busybox-1.00-5.fc4.
