Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : jinja2 (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_jinja2)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- FileSystemBytecodeCache in Jinja2 2.7.2 does not
properly create temporary directories, which allows
local users to gain privileges by pre-creating a
temporary directory with a user's uid. NOTE: this
vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for
CVE-2014-1402. (CVE-2014-0012)

- The default configuration for
bccache.FileSystemBytecodeCache in Jinja2 before 2.7.2
does not properly create temporary files, which allows
local users to gain privileges via a crafted .cache file
with a name starting with __jinja2_ in /tmp.
(CVE-2014-1402)
