Synopsis :

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

Description :

A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in librpm when the LANG or
LC_ALL environment variable is set to ru_RU.UTF-8 (and possibly other
locales), which could allow for user-assisted attackers to execute
arbitrary code via crafted RPM packages.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
