Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : at (MDKSA-2002:007)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

zen-parse discovered a problem in the at command containing an extra
call to free() which can lead to a segfault with a carefully crafted,
but incorrect, format. This is caused due to a heap corruption that
can be exploited under certain circumstances because the at command is
installed setuid root. Thanks to SuSE for an additional security
improvement that ads the O_EXCL (exclusive) option to the open(2)
system call inside the at code.

Solution :

Update the affected at package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
