    Package        : cpio
    Vulnerability  : broken file permissions
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-1999-1572
    
    It has been discovered, that cpio, a program to manage archives of
    files, creates output files with -O and -F with broken permissions due
    to a reset zero umask which allows local users to read or overwrite
    those files.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-39woody1
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cpio package.
