FreeBSD : verlihub -- insecure temporary file usage and arbitrary command execution (58997463-e012-11dd-a765-0030843d3802)
High Nessus Plugin ID 35336
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Descriptionsecurityfocus reports :
An attacker with local access could potentially exploit this issue to perform symbolic-link attacks, overwriting arbitrary files in the context of the affected application.
Successfully mounting a symlink attack may allow the attacker to delete or corrupt sensitive files, which may result in a denial of service. Other attacks may also be possible.
Verlihub is prone to a remote command-execution vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently validate user input.
Successfully exploiting this issue would allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on an affected computer in the context of the affected application.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
