Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:027: gzip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gzip package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:027 (gzip).



Zgrep in gzip before 1.3.5 does not properly sanitize arguments, which permits
local users to execute arbitrary commands via filenames that are injected into
a sed script. This was previously corrected in MDKSA-2005:092, however the fix
was incomplete. These updated packages provide a more comprehensive fix to the
problem.
