Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cdrecord (MDKSA-2005:077)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that cdrecord created
temporary files in an insecure manner if DEBUG was enabled in
/etc/cdrecord/rscsi. If the default value was used (which stored the
debug output file in /tmp), a symbolic link attack could be used to
create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user
invoking cdrecord. Please note that by default this configuration file
does not exist in Mandriva Linux so unless you create it and enable
DEBUG, this does not affect you.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
