USN172-1 : lm-sensors vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
lm-sensors vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libsensors-dev
- libsensors3
- lm-sensors
- sensord


Description :

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that the pwmconfig script
created temporary files in an insecure manner. This could permit
a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with full
root rights since pwmconfig is usually executed by root.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libsensors-dev-2.8.8-7ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- libsensors3-2.8.8-7ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- lm-sensors-2.8.8-7ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- sensord-2.8.8-7ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
