Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:060: tcltk

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tcltk package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:060 (tcltk).


Some problems were discovered with the Tcl/Tk development environment. The
expect application would search for its libraries in /var/tmp prior to searching
in other directories, which could permit a local user to gain root privilege by
writing a trojan library and waiting for the root user to run the mkpasswd
utility. This is fixed in version 5.32 of expect. A similiar vulnerability has
been fixed in the tcltk package which searched for its libraries in the current
working directory prior to searching in other directories. This could be used to
execute arbitrary code by local users through the use of a trojan library.
