rPath Security Advisory: 2006-0198-1: In previous versions of the screen package, the screen program had a bug which is known to make screen vulnerable to a minor denial of service attack in which the screen program would crash if presented with particular output. It is possible that this attack could also allow a user-complicit attacker to assume the privileges of the complicit user. The screen program is not setuid in rPath Linux, so any attack is limited to the complicit user.
