Synopsis :

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

Description :

Takumi ASAKI discovered that uim always trusts environment variables
which can allow a local attacker to obtain elevated privileges when
libuim is linked against an suid/sgid application. This problem is
only exploitable in 'immodule for Qt' enabled Qt applications.

The updated packages are patched to fix the problem.
