Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cdrdao (MDKSA-2005:089)

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 :

The cdrdao package contains two vulnerabilities; the first allows
local users to read arbitrary files via the show-data command and the
second allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink
attack on the ~/.cdrdao configuration file. This can also lead to
elevated privileges (a root shell) due to cdrdao being installed suid
root.

The provided packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected cdrdao and / or cdrdao-gcdmaster packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
