Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Javier Fernï¿½ez-Sanguino Peï¿½iscovered that several tools in the
cfengine package (vicf, cfmailfilter, and cfcron) create and use
temporary files in an insecure way. A local attacker could exploit
this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with
the privileges of the user running the cfengine program.
Update the affected cfengine and / or cfengine-doc packages.
