Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:147: openssl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openssl package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:147 (openssl).



The Trustix developers found that the der_chop script, included in the openssl
package, created temporary files insecurely. This could permit local users to
overwrite files using a symlink attack.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
