MDKSA-2005:089: cdrdao Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the cdrdao package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:089 (cdrdao).
The cdrdao package contains two vulnerabilities
the first allows local users
to read arbitrary files via the show-data command and the second allows local
users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the ~/.cdrdao
configuration file. This can also lead to elevated rights (a root shell)
due to cdrdao being installed suid root.
The provided packages have been patched to correct these issues.
