Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cdrdao (MDKSA-2005:089)
High Nessus Plugin ID 18305
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe cdrdao package contains two vulnerabilities; the first allows local users to read arbitrary files via the show-data command and the second allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the ~/.cdrdao configuration file. This can also lead to elevated privileges (a root shell) due to cdrdao being installed suid root.
The provided packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected cdrdao and / or cdrdao-gcdmaster packages.
