MDKSA-2004:011-1: netpbm Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the netpbm package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:011-1 (netpbm).
A number of temporary file bugs have been found in versions of NetPBM. These
could allow a local user the ability to overwrite or create files as a different
user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable utilities.
The patch applied made some calls to the mktemp utility with an incorrect
parameter which prevented mktemp from creating temporary files in some scripts.
