The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in dhcp :
ISC DHCP server 4.2 before 4.2.0-P2, when configured to use failover
partnerships, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(communications-interrupted state and DHCP client service loss) by
connecting to a port that is only intended for a failover peer, as
demonstrated by a Nagios check_tcp process check to TCP port 520
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.1
Public Exploit Available : true
