Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59904
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:234 (vixie-cron)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:234 (vixie-cron)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to vixie-cron
announced via advisory MDKSA-2007:234.

Raphael Marichez discovered a denial of service bug in how vixie-cron
verifies crontab file integrity. A local user with the ability
to create a hardlink to /etc/crontab could prevent vixie-cron from
executing certain system cron jobs.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, 2008.0

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
