Apple Security Advisory: APPLE-SA-2006-11-16 - Apple Remote Desktop 3.1

Detail
======

Apple Remote Desktop includes built-in packages
used to install and upgrade client systems. The permissions on
these packages could allow them to be altered by malicious local
users on Apple Remote Desktop admin systems. This could lead to
the execution of arbitrary commands with root privileges on
client systems when Apple Remote Desktop client software is
installed or upgraded. This issue has been addressed by applying
more restrictive permissions on the built-in installation
packages. Credit to Andrew Mortensen of the University of
Michigan for reporting this issue.
