MDKSA-2006:083: gdm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gdm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:083 (gdm).

users to gain rights via a symlink attack when gdm performs chown

and chgrp operations on the .ICEauthority file.



Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
