Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:157: smb4k

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the smb4k package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:157 (smb4k).



A severe security issue has been discovered in Smb4K. By linking a simple
text file FILE to /tmp/smb4k.tmp or /tmp/sudoers, a possible hacker could get
access to the full contents of the /etc/super.tab or /etc/sudoers file,
respectively, because Smb4K didn't check for the existance of these files
before writing any contents. When using super, the attack also resulted in /
etc/super.tab being a symlink to FILE.

Affected are all versions of the 0.4, 0.5, and 0.6 series of Smb4K.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
