GLSA-200803-11 : Vobcopy: Insecure temporary file creation
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31386
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-11 (Vobcopy: Insecure temporary file creation)
Joey Hess reported that vobcopy appends data to the file '/tmp/vobcopy.bla' in an insecure manner.
A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to conduct symlink attacks and append data to arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Vobcopy.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Vobcopy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-video/vobcopy-1.1.0'
