The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Geoffrey Lee discovered a problem with the ksymoops-gznm script
distributed with Mandrakelinux. The script fails to do proper checking
when copying a file to the /tmp directory. Because of this, a local
attacker can setup a symlink to point to a file that they do not have
permission to remove. The problem is difficult to exploit because
someone with root privileges needs to run ksymoops on a particular
module for which a symlink for the same filename already exists.
Update the affected ksymoops package.
