Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:008: jmcce

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the jmcce package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:008 (jmcce).


A problem exists in the jmcce program that is used for Chinese text on the
console. jmcce is installed setuid root and places log files in /tmp
because
jmcce does not perform suitable checking on the files it writes to and because
it uses a predictable logfile name, a possible hacker could exploit this to
arbitrarily overwrite any file on the system.
