Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:058-1: cdrecord

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cdrecord package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:058-1 (cdrecord).


A vulnerability in cdrecord was discovered that can be used to obtain root
access because Mandrake Linux ships with the cdrecord binary suid root and sgid
cdwriter.
Updated packages are provided that fix this vulnerability. You may also elect to
remove the suid and sgid bits from cdrecord manually, which can be done by
executing, as root:
chmod ug-s /usr/bin/cdrecord
This is not required to protect yourself from this particular vulnerability,
however.
Update:
Two additional format string problems were discovered by Olaf Kirch and an
updated patch has been applied to fix those problems as well.
