Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:046: uim

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the uim package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:046 (uim).



Takumi ASAKI discovered that uim always trusts environment variables which can
permit a local attacker to obtain elevated rights when libuim is linked
against an suid/sgid application. This problem is only exploitable in 'immodule
for Qt' enabled Qt applications.

The updated packages are patched to fix the problem.
