Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55555
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-198-1 (cfengine)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-198-1 (cfengine)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to cfengine
announced via advisory USN-198-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

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

The following packages are affected: cfengine

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that several tools in the
cfengine package (vicf, cfmailfilter, and cfcron) create and use
temporary files in an insecure way. A local attacker could exploit
this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with
the privileges of the user running the cfengine program.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.6.5-1ubuntu0.4.10.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or
1.6.5-1ubuntu0.5.04.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
