MDKSA-2004:091: 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-2004:091 (cdrecord).


Max Vozeler found that the cdrecord program, which is suid root, fails to drop
euid=0 when it exec()s a program specified by the user through the $RSH
environment variable. This can be abused by a local attacker to obtain root
rights.
The updated packages are patched to fix the vulnerability.
