MDKSA-2003:054: man Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the man package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:054 (man).


A difficult to exploit vulnerability was discovered in versions of man prior to
1.5l. A bug exists in man that could cause a program named 'unsafe' to be
executed due to a malformed man file. In order to exploit this bug, a local
attacker would have to be able to get another user to read the malformed man
file, and the attacker would also have to create a file called 'unsafe' that
would be located somewhere in the victim's path.
