RHSA-2005-825: lm_sensors

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lm_sensors packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated lm_sensors packages that fix an insecure file issue are now available.

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

The lm_sensors package includes a collection of modules for general SMBus
access and hardware monitoring. This package requires special support which
is not in standard version 2.2 kernels.

A bug was found in the way the pwmconfig tool creates temporary files. It
is possible that a local attacker could leverage this flaw to overwrite
arbitrary files located on the system. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2672 to this issue.

Users of lm_sensors are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
