Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDKSA-2004:147)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 15920


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The Trustix developers found that the der_chop script, included in the openssl package, created temporary files insecurely. This could allow local users to overwrite files using a symlink attack.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.


Update the affected packages.
