Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : expect (MDKSA-2001:087)
High Nessus Plugin ID 13900
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA packaging problem that can lead to a root compromise existed in the expect package as provided in Mandrake Linux 8.1. expect would look for libraries in the directory /home/snailtalk/tmp/tcltk-root/usr/lib before any other and if such a user existed on the system, with rogue libraries, if root were to execute expect, a compromise could occur.
SolutionUpdate the affected expect package.
