Synopsis :

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

Description :

A number of temporary file bugs have been found in versions of NetPBM.
These could allow a local user the ability to overwrite or create
files as a different user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable
utilities.

Update :

The patch applied made some calls to the mktemp utility with an
incorrect parameter which prevented mktemp from creating temporary
files in some scripts.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
