Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61689
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:208 (pam_mount)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:208 (pam_mount)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to pam_mount
announced via advisory MDVSA-2008:208.

pam_mount 0.10 through 0.45, when luserconf is enabled, does not verify
mountpoint and source ownership before mounting a user-defined volume,
which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via
a local mount.

The updated packages have been patched to fix the issue.

Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0, 2008.1, Corporate 4.0

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