Dear Vserver Community!
Markus Müller from GeNUA (Germany) reported an up
to now unknown way to escape from the vserver chroot
jail, which is based on the fact the chmod did not
verify the 000 barrier correctly ...
the following patch, applied with patch -p0
fixes this issue, for stable and devel releases
a new stable version including this fix will
be available in the next hour ...
this is a vulnerability, which allows any vserver
root user to escape the chroot() jail, and gain
access to the host server, so I would suggest to
patch/upgrade as soon as possible.
PS: all linux-vserver versions are affected.
