Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN100-1 : cdrtools vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
cdrtools vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- cdda2wav
- cdrecord
- cdrtools-doc
- mkisofs


Description :

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that cdrecord created temporary
files in an insecure manner if DEBUG was enabled in
/etc/cdrecord/rscsi. If the default value was used (which stored the
debug output file in /tmp), this could permit a symbolic link attack to
create or overwrite arbitrary files with the rights of the user
invoking cdrecord.

Please note that DEBUG is not enabled by default in Ubuntu, so if you
did not explicitly enable it, this does not affect you.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- cdda2wav-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- cdrecord-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- cdrtools-doc-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- mkisofs-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
