Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56338
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-254-1 (noweb)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-254-1 (noweb)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to noweb
announced via advisory USN-254-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: nowebm

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that noweb scripts created
temporary files in an insecure way. This could allow a symlink attack
to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user
running noweb.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.10c-3ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2.10c-3.1ubuntu5.04.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2.10c-3.1ubuntu5.10.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general,
a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary
changes.
