Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:064: tripwire

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tripwire package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:064 (tripwire).


Jarno Juuskonen reported that a temporary file vulnerability exists in versions
of Tripwire prior to 2.3.1-2. Because Tripwire opens/creates temporary files in
/tmp without the O_EXCL flag during filesystem scanning and database updating, a
malicious user could execute a symlink attack against the temporary files. This
new version has all but one unsafe temporary file open fixed. It can still be
used safely when using the new TEMPDIRECTORY configuration option, which is now
set to /root/tmp.
