Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:047 (pine).
Versions of the Pine email client prior to 4.33 have various temporary file
creation problems, as does the pico editor. These issues allow any user with
local system access to cause any files owned by any other user, including root,
to potentially be overwritten if the conditions were right.
