Sendmail Security Fix released
Posted by: tsg on Sunday, March 30, 2003 - 10:42 PM
Linux Sendmail has released version 8.12.9 as a security fix. From the change log:
8.12.9/8.12.9 2003/03/29 SECURITY: Fix a buffer overflow in address parsing due to a char to int conversion problem which is potentially remotely exploitable. Problem found by Michal Zalewski. Note: an MTA that is not patched might be vulnerable to data that it receives from untrusted sources, which includes DNS.
Note that this is a different exploit from the one which prompted the 8.12.8 release.

Tar/Samba "file changed as we read it" error.
Posted by: tsg on Sunday, March 09, 2003 - 08:05 PM
Linux I use tar to backup a Samba share on my office network. After an upgrade, I started getting "file changed as we read it" errors from tar in my backup log. Everything I've found on the web consists of people claiming that Windows does wierd things when you're not watching and could be modifying these files. I happened to notice, though, that the creation and modification times on the files were not changing, and that it was the same files every time. The files were backing up properly and it did not happen with the previous version of tar.
