(security) file ownership in liblockfile1 1.01 (fwd)

i sent this off to the security mailing list...  the permissions problem
is apparently sparc specific.

There's the problem.


This sort of error happens when building the package.  It needs to be
recompiled for sparc.  I'll try to get it in 2.2r1.

just ran tiger on a fresh debian (2.2) install, and received the following

# Performing check of PATH components...
# Only checking user 'root'
--WARN-- [path002w] /usr/bin/dotlockfile in root's PATH from default is
not owned by root (owned by dovienya).

--WARN-- [xxxxx] The following files have undefined groups ownership:

and sure enough...

-rwxr-sr-x    1 dovienya mail /usr/bin/dotlockfile
-rw-r--r--    1 root     500  /usr/doc/liblockfile1/changelog.gz
-rw-r--r--    1 root     500  /usr/doc/liblockfile1/copyright
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root /usr/lib/liblockfile.so.1 ->
-rw-r--r--    1 root     500  /usr/lib/liblockfile.so.1.0
-rw-r--r--    1 root     500  /usr/man/man1/dotlockfile.1
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     500  /var/lib/dpkg/info/liblockfile1.postinst
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     500  /var/lib/dpkg/info/liblockfile1.shlibs

i verified that the same holds true on two other installs, and didn't find
any information on this on the net at large...  so i thought i'd send an
email out debian-security way to get some feedback...
