Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:121: netatalk

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the netatalk package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:121 (netatalk).



The etc2ps.sh script, part of the netatalk package, creates files in /tmp with
predicatable names which could permit a local attacker to use symbolic links to
point to a valid file on the filesystem which could lead to the overwriting of
arbitrary files if etc2ps.sh is executed by someone with enough privilege.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
