The SAFER K-64 encryption algorithm has been compromised through a real-world, practical, low-cost attack. Using consumer-grade hardware, the SAFER K-64 key schedule is vulnerable to a related-key chosen plaintext attack. By comparing enough plaintext data that is matched to its corresponding cipher text, the encryption keys can be derived through cryptanalysis. Such an attack could potentially compromise the entire encryption scheme, giving the attacker access to sensitive data.
The ps program in Sun Solaris contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to overwrite arbitrary files. The issue is triggered when the program creates the 'ps_data' file with root permission in the /tmp directory, which is world-writeable. It is possible that the flaw may allow a malicious user to create a symlink from a malicious file, which could be overwritten when the application is executed resulting in a loss of integrity.
