Updated Tripwire packages that fix a format string security vulnerability are now available.
Tripwire is a system integrity assessment tool. Paul Herman discovered a format string vulnerability in Tripwire version 2.3.1 and earlier. If Tripwire is configured to send reports via email, a local user could gain privileges by creating a carefully crafted file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0536 to this issue. Users of Tripwire are advised to upgrade to this erratum package which contains a backported security patch to correct this issue. The erratum package also contains some minor bug fixes.
