Synopsis :

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

Description :

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE security team found that the
System.CodeDom.Compiler classes in mono used temporary files in an
insecure way that could allow a symbolic link attack to overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running a program that
made use of those classes.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.2
