Package name:           xfsdump
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:047
Date:                   April 16th, 2003

Affected versions: 8.2, 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered in xfsdump by Ethan Benson related to
filesystem quotas on the XFS filesystem.  When xfsdump runs xfsdq to
save the quota information into a file at the root of the filesystem
being dumped, the file is created in an unsafe manner.

 A new option to xfsdq was added when fixing this vulnerability:
'-f path'.  This specifies an output file to use instead of the
default output stream.  If the file exists already, xfsdq will
abort and if the file doesn't already exist, it will be created
with more appropriate access permissions.
