Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : jmcce (MDKSA-2002:008)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

A problem exists in the jmcce program that is used for Chinese text on
the console. jmcce is installed setuid root and places log files in
/tmp; because jmcce does not perform suitable checking on the files it
writes to and because it uses a predictable logfile name, an attacker
could exploit this to arbitrarily overwrite any file on the system.

Solution :

Update the affected jmcce package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 1.2
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 13916 (mandrake_MDKSA-2002-008.nasl)
