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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Paul Herman discovered a format string vulnerability in tripwire that
could allow a local user to execute arbitrary code with the rights of
the user running tripwire (typically root). This vulnerability only
exists when tripwire is generating an email report.

Update :

The packages previously released for Mandrakelinux 9.2 would segfault
when doing a check due to compilation problems. The updated packages
correct the problem.
