Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in vte :

The vte_sequence_handler_window_manipulation function in vteseq.c in
libvte (aka libvte9) in VTE 0.25.1 and earlier, as used in
gnome-terminal, does not properly handle escape sequences, which
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands or obtain
potentially sensitive information via a (1) window title or (2) icon
title sequence. NOTE: this issue exists because of a CVE-2003-0070
regression (CVE-2010-2713).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Update the affected packages.
