Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:188: mono

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mono package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:188 (mono).

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE security team found that the
System.CodeDom.Compiler classes in mono used temporary files in an
insecure way that could permit a symbolic link attack to overwrite
arbitrary files with the rights of the user running a program that
made use of those classes.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
