Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : shorewall (MDKSA-2004:080)

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 :

The shorewall package has a vulnerability when creating temporary
files and directories, which could allow non-root users to overwrite
arbitrary files on the system. The updated packages are patched to fix
the problem.

As well, for Mandrakelinux 10.0, the updated packages have been fixed
to start shorewall after the network, rather than before.

After updating the package, if shorewall was previously running, you
may need to issue a 'service shorewall restart'.
