USN100-1 : cdrtools vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
cdrtools vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- cdda2wav
- cdrecord
- cdrtools-doc
- mkisofs

Description :

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that cdrecord created temporary
files in an insecure manner if DEBUG was enabled in
/etc/cdrecord/rscsi. If the default value was used (which stored the
debug output file in /tmp), this could allow a symbolic link attack to
create or overwrite arbitrary files with the rights of the user
invoking cdrecord.

Please note that DEBUG is not enabled by default in Ubuntu, so if you
did not explicitly enable it, this does not affect you.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- cdda2wav-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- cdrecord-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- cdrtools-doc-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- mkisofs-2.0+a30.pre1-1ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)

Threat Level: High
