Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Versions of Xorg 6.9.0 and greater have a bug in xf86Init.c, which
allows non-root users to use the -modulepath, -logfile and -configure
options. This allows loading of arbitrary modules which will execute
as the root user, as well as a local DoS by overwriting system files.

Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
