Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : bash1 (MDKSA-2000:075)

high Nessus Plugin ID 61861
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


The bash1 shell program has the same << vulnerability that tcsh has and incorrectly creates temporary files without the O_EXCL flag. This vulnerability does not exist in bash2 which uses the O_EXCL flag when creating temporary files.


Update the affected bash1 package.
