Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24573
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSebastian Krahmer of the SUSE security team found that the System.CodeDom.Compiler classes in mono used temporary files in an insecure way that could allow a symbolic link attack to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running a program that made use of those classes.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
