This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in lftp :

The get1 command, as used by lftpget, in LFTP before 4.0.6 does not
properly validate a server-provided filename before determining the
destination filename of a download, which allows remote servers to
create or overwrite arbitrary files via a Content-Disposition header
that suggests a crafted filename, and possibly execute arbitrary code
as a consequence of writing to a dotfile in a home directory

Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended
Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

Additionally on 2008.0 lftp has been upgraded to 3.7.4.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
