The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated NetPBM packages are available that fix a number of temporary
file vulnerabilities in the netpbm libraries.
The netpbm package contains a library of functions that support
programs for handling various graphics file formats, including .pbm
(portable bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps),
.ppm (portable pixmaps), and others.
A number of temporary file bugs have been found in versions of NetPBM.
These could make it possible for a local user to overwrite or create
files as a different user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable
utilities. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0924 to this issue.
Users are advised to upgrade to the erratum packages, which contain
patches from Debian that correct these bugs.
