Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:057-1: tripwire

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tripwire package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:057-1 (tripwire).


Paul Herman discovered a format string vulnerability in tripwire that could
permit a local user to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
tripwire (typically root). This vulnerability only exists when tripwire is
generating an email report.
Update:
The packages previously released for Mandrakelinux 9.2 would segfault when doing
a check due to compilation problems. The updated packages correct the problem.
