The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
The linux cdrecord binary is vulnerable to a locally exploitable
buffer overflow attack. When installed on a Linux-Mandrake
distribution, it is by default setgid 'cdburner' (which is a group,
gid: 80, that is created for the application). The overflow condition
is the result of no bounds checking on the 'dev=' argument passed to
cdburner at execution time. This vulnerability can be exploited to
execute arbitrary commands with the gid 'cdburner'.
Update the affected packages.
