Synopsis :

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

Description :

library used by kadmind. A remote unauthenticated attacker who could
access kadmind could trigger the flaw causing kadmind to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2007-2442).

David Coffey also discovered an overflow flaw in the same RPC library.
A remote unauthenticated attacker who could access kadmind could
trigger the flaw causing kadmind to crash or possibly execute
arbitrary code (CVE-2007-2443).

Finally, a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in
kadmind that allowed an unauthenticated user able to access kadmind
the ability to trigger the vulnerability and possibly execute
arbitrary code (CVE-2007-2798).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
