Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : unzip (MDKSA-2005:197)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Unzip 5.51 and earlier does not properly warn the user when extracting
setuid or setgid files, which may allow local users to gain
privileges. (CVE-2005-0602)

Imran Ghory found a race condition in the handling of output files.
While a file was unpacked by unzip, a local attacker with write
permissions to the target directory could exploit this to change the
permissions of arbitrary files of the unzip user. This affects
versions of unzip 5.52 and lower (CVE-2005-2475)

The updated packages have been patched to address these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected unzip package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.2
