Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in pcsc-lite :

The MSGFunctionDemarshall function in winscard_svc.c in the PC/SC
Smart Card daemon (aka PCSCD) in MUSCLE PCSC-Lite before 1.5.4 might
allow local users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via
crafted SCARD_SET_ATTRIB message data, which is improperly
demarshalled and triggers a buffer over-read, a related issue to
CVE-2010-0407 (CVE-2009-4901).

Buffer overflow in the MSGFunctionDemarshall function in
winscard_svc.c in the PC/SC Smart Card daemon (aka PCSCD) in MUSCLE
PCSC-Lite 1.5.4 and earlier might allow local users to gain privileges
via crafted SCARD_CONTROL message data, which is improperly
demarshalled. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect
fix for CVE-2010-0407 (CVE-2009-4902).
