Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mono :

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the ASP.net
class libraries in Mono 2.0 and earlier allow remote attackers to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted attributes related to
(1) HtmlControl.cs (PreProcessRelativeReference), (2) HtmlForm.cs
(RenderAttributes), (3) HtmlInputButton (RenderAttributes), (4)
HtmlInputRadioButton (RenderAttributes), and (5) HtmlSelect
(RenderChildren) (CVE-2008-3422).

The XML HMAC signature system did not correctly check certain lengths.
If an attacker sent a truncated HMAC, it could bypass authentication,
leading to potential privilege escalation (CVE-2009-0217).

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
