MandrakeUpdate
Date

Advisory ID
MDKSA-2000:034
Affected versions
6.1 i586 , 6.0 i586 , 7.0 i586 , 7.1 i586

Problem description

There is a possible race condition in MandrakeUpdate that has the potential for users to tamper with RPMs downloaded by MandrakeUpdate prior to them being installed. This is due to files being stored in the /tmp directory. This is a very low security-risk as most servers that provide user logins shouldn't be using MandrakeUpdate. These updated versions provide a fix for the problem by using /root/tmp instead of /tmp.
