This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

The links web browser with smbclient installed allows remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code via shell metacharacters in an smb:// URI,
as demonstrated by using PUT and GET statements.

Corporate 3.0 is not affected by this issue, as that version of links
does not have smb:// URI support.

Updated packages have disabled access to smb:// URIs.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
