Fedora 13 : emesene-1.6.2-1.fc13 (2010-9692)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 47550


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


emesenelib/ProfileManager.py in emesene before 1.6.2 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the emsnpic temporary file.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected emesene package.
