Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:052: sharutils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sharutils package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:052 (sharutils).


The uudecode utility creates output files without checking to see if it is about
to write to a symlink or pipe. This could be exploited by a local attacker to
overwrite files or lead to privilege escalation if users decode data into share
directories, such as /tmp. This update fixes this vulnerability by checking to
see if the destination output file is a symlink or pipe.
