Ubuntu 12.10 / 13.04 : libimobiledevice vulnerability (USN-1927-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Paul Collins discovered that libimobiledevice incorrectly handled
temporary files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
overwrite arbitrary files and access device keys. In the default
Ubuntu installation, this issue should be mitigated by the Yama link
restrictions.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected libimobiledevice3 package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 3.3
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 2.9
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
