MGASA-2022-0217 - Updated logrotate packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 03 Jun 2022
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2022-0217.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 8
CVE: CVE-2022-1348

A vulnerability was found in logrotate in how the state file is created.
The state file is used to prevent parallel executions of multiple instances
of logrotate by acquiring and releasing a file lock. When the state file
does not exist, it is created with world-readable permission, allowing an
unprivileged user to lock the state file, stopping any rotation. This flaw
affects logrotate versions before 3.20.0. (CVE-2022-1348)
Note the change in permission does not apply until the first time logrotate
runs after installing the update.
