Synopsis :

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

Description :

Wei Wang found that the SNMP discovery backend in CUPS did not
correctly calculate the length of strings. If a user could be tricked
into scanning for printers, a remote attacker could send a specially
crafted packet and possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2007-5849).

As well, the fix for CVE-2007-0720 in MDKSA-2007:086 caused another
denial of service regression within SSL handling (CVE-2007-4045).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
