The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
Alfredo Ortega found a flaw in how Vinagre uses format strings. A
remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability if they were able to
trick a user into connecting to a malicious VNC server, or opening a
specially crafted URI with Vinagre. With older versions of Vinagre, it
was possible to execute arbitrary code with user privileges. In later
versions, Vinagre would abort, leading to a denial of service.
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
Update the affected vinagre package.
