Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1071 (sysreport).
Sysreport is a utility that gathers information about a system's
hardware and configuration. The information can then be used for
diagnostic purposes and debugging. Sysreport is commonly used to help
support technicians and developers by providing a 'snapshot' of a
system's current layout.
It is possible for a local attacker to cause a race
condition and trick sysreport into writing its output to a
directory the attacker can read.
