Fedora Core 4 2005-1071: sysreport

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sysreport package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1071 (sysreport).

Sysreport is a utility that gathers information about a system's
hardware and configuration. The information can then be used for
diagnostic purposes and debugging. Sysreport is commonly used to help
support technicians and developers by providing a 'snapshot' of a
system's current layout.

Update Information:

It is possible for a local attacker to cause a race
condition and trick sysreport into writing its output to a
directory the attacker can read.

The new sysreport fixes this security issue
