Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : pine (MDKSA-2001:047-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 13866
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionVersions of the Pine email client prior to 4.33 have various temporary file creation problems, as does the pico editor. These issues allow any user with local system access to cause any files owned by any other user, including root, to potentially be overwritten if the conditions were right.
The packages for 7.1 and Corporate Server did not properly update the menu entries. These updated packages update the menu entries.
SolutionUpdate the affected pine package.
