Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:149: lm_sensors

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lm_sensors package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:149 (lm_sensors).



Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that the pwmconfig script in the
lm_sensors package created temporary files in an insecure manner. This could
permit a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with full root
rights because pwmconfig is typically executed by root.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem by using mktemp
to create the temporary files.
