Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51337
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:833
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:833
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:833.

Midnight Commander (MC) is a visual shell and a file manager for text
consoles.

This update fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability[1] in the code that
handles symlinks in the virtual filesystem module. An attacker could
create a specially crafted archive (like a .tar.gz or a cpio file)
containing symlinks that when opened by an mc user would trigger the
execution of arbitrary code with its privileges.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2003-1023 to this issue[2].


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
