Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gtk+ (MDKSA-2001:061-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A vulnerability exists with the GTK+ toolkit in that the GTK_MODULES
environment variable allows a local user to enter a directory path to
a module that does not necessarily need to be associated with GTK+.
With this, an attacker could create a custom module and load it using
the toolkit which could result in elevated privileges, the overwriting
of system files, and the execution of malicious code.

Update :

The packages for 7.2 and Single Network Firewall 7.2 were not signed
with our GnuPG key. Please note the changed MD5 values of the below
packages.
