Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sysreport packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated sysreport package that fixes an insecure temporary file flaw is
now available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

Sysreport is a utility that gathers information about a system's hardware
and configuration. The information can then be used for diagnostic purposes
and debugging.

Bill Stearns discovered a bug in the way sysreport creates temporary files.
It is possible that a local attacker could obtain sensitive information
about the system when sysreport is run. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2104 to this issue.

Users of sysreport should update to this erratum package, which contains a
patch that resolves this issue.
