MDKSA-2004:144: lvm Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the lvm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:144 (lvm).

The Trustix developers discovered that the lvmcreate_initrd script, part of the
lvm1 package, created a temporary directory in an insecure manner. This could
allow for a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
rights of the user running the script.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
