Hi!

After Updating snort on 30 (!) SuSE 7.2 boxes the permissions of
/etc/rc.config
were set to -----w--w- :-(((

arber:~ # ls -l /etc/rc.config
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35265 Feb 8 19:00 /etc/rc.config

arber:~ # rpm -Uvh snort-1.8.1-16.i386.rpm
snort-1.8.1-16.i386.rpm
snort
##################################################
Moving snort configuration file snort-lib to new name snort.conf.
Convert file reference from snort-lib to snort.conf in etc/rc.config
Updating etc/rc.config...

arber:~ # ls -l /etc/rc.config
-----w--w- 1 root root 35266 Feb 8 19:00 /etc/rc.config

arber:~ # rpm -q --scripts snort
...
umask 644 <------------------
mv etc/rc.config.new-snort etc/rc.config
...

:-(((((((((((((

It seems that anybody out there has problems with umask and chmod Syntax.


Boys, what a great security Patch!!
