Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple flaws were found in the way the RPM library parsed package
headers. An attacker could create a specially crafted RPM package
that, when queried or installed, would cause rpm to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2011-3378).

Additionally for Mandriva Linux 2009.0 and Mandriva Linux Enterprise
Server 5 updated perl-URPM and lzma (xz v5) packages are being
provided to support upgrading to Mandriva Linux 2011.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
