Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:144: lvm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lvm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:144 (lvm).



The Trustix developers discovered that the lvmcreate_initrd script, part of the
lvm1 package, created a temporary directory in an insecure manner. This could
permit for a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
rights of the user running the script.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
