The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
The SuSE security team discovered two vulnerabilities in the KDE
lanbrowsing service during an audit. The LISa network daemon and
'reslisa', a restricted version of LISa are used to identify servers
on the local network by using the URL type 'lan://' and 'rlan://'
respectively. A buffer overflow was discovered in the lisa daemon that
can be exploited by an attacker on the local network to obtain root
privilege on a machine running the lisa daemon. Another buffer
overflow was found in the lan:// URL handler, which can be exploited
by a remote attacker to gain access to the victim user's account.
Only Mandrake Linux 9.0 comes with the LISa network daemon; all
previous versions do not contain the network daemon and are as such
