Synopsis :

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

Description :

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

- The (1) extract_keys_from_pdf and (2) fill_pdf functions
in pdf_ext.py in logilab-commons before 0.61.0 allows
local users to overwrite arbitrary files and possibly
have other unspecified impact via a symlink attack on
/tmp/ toto.fdf. (CVE-2014-1838)

- The Execute class in shellutils in logilab-commons
before 0.61.0 uses tempfile.mktemp, which allows local
users to have an unspecified impact by pre-creating the
temporary file. (CVE-2014-1839)
