Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in openafs :

The cache manager in the client in OpenAFS 1.0 through 1.4.8 and 1.5.0
through 1.5.58 on Linux allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (system crash) via an RX response with a large error-code
value that is interpreted as a pointer and dereferenced, related to
use of the ERR_PTR macro (CVE-2009-1250).

Heap-based buffer overflow in the cache manager in the client in
OpenAFS 1.0 through 1.4.8 and 1.5.0 through 1.5.58 on Unix platforms
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via an RX response containing more
data than specified in a request, related to use of XDR arrays
(CVE-2009-1251).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
