The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
The daemon in acpid before 1.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption and connectivity loss) by opening a
large number of UNIX sockets without closing them, which triggers an
infinite loop (CVE-2009-0798).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
Update the affected acpid package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
