Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : Mesa (MDKSA-2001:029)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Ben Collins identified a temporary file race in the Utah-glx component
of the Mesa package which affects Linux-Mandrake 7.2. The
/tmp/glxmemory file is created by Utah-glx and because it is not
created securely could be used in a symlink attack which allows files
to be overwritten the next time the X server is started.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
