This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The new OpenSSH 3.0.2 fixes a vulnerability in the UseLogin option. By
default, Mandrake Linux does not enable UseLogin, but if the
administrator enables it, local users are able to pass environment
variables to the login process. This update also fixes a security hole
in the KerberosV support that is present in versions 2.9.9 and 3.0.0.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
