Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: lm_sensors
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:149
Date: August 25th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that the pwmconfig script in
the lm_sensors package created temporary files in an insecure manner.
This could allow a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary
files with full root privileges because pwmconfig is typically executed
by root.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem by using
mktemp to create the temporary files.
