The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
There is a problem in the mgetty package, which contains a number of
tools for sending and receiving faxes. The faxrunq tool uses a marker
file in the /tmp directory, which is world-writable, in an insecure
fashion. This problem, if exploited, allows malicious users to
overwrite files on the system via a symlink attack which are owned by
the user that is invoking faxrunq. All versions of mgetty prior to
1.1.22 are vulnerable.
Update the affected packages.
