Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openssh (MDKSA-2007:236)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw in OpenSSH prior to 4.7 prevented ssh from properly handling
when an untrusted cookie could not be created and used a trusted X11
cookie instead, which could allow attackers to violate intended policy
and gain privileges by causing an X client to be treated as trusted.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
