The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
The hack-local-variable function in Emacs 22 prior to version 22.2,
when enable-local-variables is set to ':safe', did not properly search
lists of unsafe or risky variables, which could allow user-assisted
attackers to bypass intended restrictions and modify critical program
variables via a file containing a Local variables declaration
(CVE-2007-5795; only affects Mandriva Linux 2008.0).
A stack-based buffer overflow in emacs could allow user-assisted
attackers to cause an application crash or possibly have other
unspecified impacts via a large precision value in an integer format
string specifier to the format function (CVE-2007-6109).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Update the affected packages.
