Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : netpbm (MDKSA-2004:011-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 14111
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA number of temporary file bugs have been found in versions of NetPBM.
These could allow a local user the ability to overwrite or create files as a different user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable utilities.
The patch applied made some calls to the mktemp utility with an incorrect parameter which prevented mktemp from creating temporary files in some scripts.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
