Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : lvm (MDKSA-2004:144)

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 Trustix developers discovered that the lvmcreate_initrd script,
part of the lvm1 package, created a temporary directory in an insecure
manner. This could allow for a symlink attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the script.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.

Solution :

Update the affected lvm and / or lvm1 packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
