Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : LPRng (MDKSA-2003:060)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 14043
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionKarol Lewandowski discovered a problem with psbanner, a printer filter that creates a PostScript format banner. psbanner creates a temporary file for debugging purposes when it is configured as a filter, and does not check whether or not this file already exists or is a symlink. The filter will overwrite this file, or the file it is pointing to (if it is a symlink) with its current environment and called arguments with the user id that LPRng is running as.
SolutionUpdate the affected LPRng package.
