The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
The Trustix Secure Linux team discovered a vulnerability in the
groffer utility, part of the groff package. It created a temporary
directory in an insecure way which allowed for the exploitation of a
race condition to create or overwrite files the privileges of the user
Likewise, similar temporary file issues were fixed in the pic2graph
and eqn2graph programs which now use mktemp to create temporary files,
as discovered by Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected packages.
