Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openldap (MDKSA-2000:003)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

OpenLDAP follows symbolic links when creating files. The default
location for these files is /usr/tmp, which is a symlink to /tmp,
which in turn is a world-writable directory. Local users can destroy
the contents of any file on any mounted filesystem.

Solution :

Update the affected openldap package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 1.8
(CVSS2#E:H/RL:OF/RC:C)
