Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:087 (expect).


A packaging problem that can lead to a root compromise existed in the expect
package as provided in Mandrake Linux 8.1. expect would look for libraries in
the directory /home/snailtalk/tmp/tcltk-root/usr/lib before any other and if
such a user existed on the system, with rogue libraries, if root were to execute
expect, a compromise could occur.
