Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60464
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way Postfix dereferences symbolic links. If a local user has write access to a mail spool directory with no root mailbox, it may be possible for them to append arbitrary data to files that root has write permission to. (CVE-2008-2936)
