Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : util-linux (MDKSA-2007:111)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

login in util-linux-2.12a (and later versions) skips pam_acct_mgmt and
chauth_tok when authentication is skipped, such as when a Kerberos
krlogin session has been established, which might allow users to
bypass intended access policies that would be enforced by
pam_acct_mgmt and chauth_tok.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected losetup, mount and / or util-linux packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.1
