Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : krb5 (MDKSA-2003:021)

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 was discovered in the Kerberos FTP client. When the
client retrieves a file that has a filename beginning with a pipe
character, the FTP client will pass that filename to the command shell
in a system() call. This could allow a malicious remote FTP server to
write to files outside of the current directory or even execute
arbitrary commands as the user using the FTP client.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
