Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55481
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-191-1 (unzip)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-191-1 (unzip)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to unzip
announced via advisory USN-191-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: unzip

Imran Ghory found a race condition in the handling of output files.
While a file was unpacked by unzip, a local attacker with write
permissions to the target directory could exploit this to change the
permissions of arbitrary files of the unzip user.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 5.51-2ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 5.51-2ubuntu1.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.
