Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : rpm (MDVSA-2012:056)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple flaws were found in the way RPM parsed package file headers.
An attacker could create a specially crafted RPM package that, when
its package header was accessed, or during package signature
verification, could cause an application using the RPM library to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2012-0060,
CVE-2012-0061, CVE-2012-0815).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
