Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Two buffer overflow issues were discovered in the way telnet clients
handle messages from a server. Because of these issues, an attacker
may be able to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine if the
victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server.
The Kerberos package contains a telnet client and is patched to deal
with these issues.
