This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A bug in the way kioslave handles URL-encoded newline (%0a) characters
before the FTP command was discovered. Because of this, it is possible
that a specially crafted URL could be used to execute any ftp command
on a remote server, or even send unsolicited email.

As well, Davide Madrisan discovered that dcopidlng created temporary
files in an insecure manner.

The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.
