Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:159: glibc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the glibc package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:159 (glibc).



The Trustix developers discovered that the catchsegv and glibcbug utilities,
part of the glibc package, created temporary files in an insecure manner. This
could permit for a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with
the rights of the user invoking the program.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
