Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gzip (MDKSA-2006:027)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Zgrep in gzip before 1.3.5 does not properly sanitize arguments, which
allows local users to execute arbitrary commands via filenames that
are injected into a sed script.

This was previously corrected in MDKSA-2005:092, however the fix was
incomplete. These updated packages provide a more comprehensive fix to
the problem.

Solution :

Update the affected gzip package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
