Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : LPRng (MDKSA-2003:060)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Karol Lewandowski discovered a problem with psbanner, a printer filter
that creates a PostScript format banner. psbanner creates a temporary
file for debugging purposes when it is configured as a filter, and
does not check whether or not this file already exists or is a
symlink. The filter will overwrite this file, or the file it is
pointing to (if it is a symlink) with its current environment and
called arguments with the user id that LPRng is running as.

Solution :

Update the affected LPRng package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 14043 (mandrake_MDKSA-2003-060.nasl)
