Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in lvm2 :

The cluster logical volume manager daemon (clvmd) in lvm2-cluster in
LVM2 before 2.02.72, as used in Red Hat Global File System (GFS) and
other products, does not verify client credentials upon a socket
connection, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(daemon exit or logical-volume change) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via crafted control commands (CVE-2010-2526).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Update the affected packages.
