Slackware 11.0 / 12.0 / 12.1 / current : amarok (SSA:2008-241-01)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 34061
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew Amarok packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and
-current to fix security issues. In addition, new supporting libgpod packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0, since a newer version of libgpod than shipped with these releases is required to run Amarok version 1.4.10. The Magnatune music library plugin made insecure use of the /tmp directory, allowing malicious local users to overwrite files owned by the user running Amarok through symlink attacks.
SolutionUpdate the affected amarok and / or libgpod packages.
