The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in acpid :
acpid.c in acpid before 2.0.9 does not properly handle a situation in
which a process has connected to acpid.socket but is not reading any
data, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (daemon
hang) via a crafted application that performs a connect system call
but no read system calls (CVE-2011-1159).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected acpid package.
Risk factor :
Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
CVSS Temporal Score : 1.8
Public Exploit Available : true
