The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
A memory leak that could be triggered remotely was discovered in
ypserv 2.5 and earlier. This could lead to a Denial of Service as
repeated requests for a non-existent map will result in ypserv
consuming more and more memory, and also running more slowly. If the
system runs out of available memory, ypserv would also be killed.
Update the affected ypserv package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
