The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
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.
The packages previously released for Mandrakelinux 9.2 would segfault
when doing a check due to compilation problems. The updated packages
correct the problem.
