Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:089: cdrdao

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cdrdao package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:089 (cdrdao).



The cdrdao package contains two vulnerabilities
the first permits local users
to read arbitrary files via the show-data command and the second permits local
users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the ~/.cdrdao
configuration file. This can also lead to elevated rights (a root shell)
due to cdrdao being installed suid root.

The provided packages have been patched to correct these issues.
