This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A wrong handling of signed Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (S/MIME) e-mail messages enables attackers to spoof its
signatures by modifying the latter copy (CVE-2009-0547).

Crafted authentication challange packets (NT Lan Manager type 2) sent
by a malicious remote mail server enables remote attackers either to
cause denial of service and to read information from the process
memory of the client (CVE-2009-0582).

Multiple integer overflows in Base64 encoding functions enables
attackers either to cause denial of service and to execute arbitrary
code (CVE-2009-0587).

This update provides fixes for those vulnerabilities.

evolution-data-server packages from Mandriva Linux distributions
2008.1 and 2009.0 are not affected by CVE-2009-0587.
