Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:011-1: netpbm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the netpbm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:011-1 (netpbm).


A number of temporary file bugs have been found in versions of NetPBM. These
could permit a local user the ability to overwrite or create files as a different
user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable utilities.
Update:
The patch applied made some calls to the mktemp utility with an incorrect
parameter which prevented mktemp from creating temporary files in some scripts.
