The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A security issue was identified and fixed in xinetd :
builtins.c in Xinetd before 2.3.15 does not check the service type
when the tcpmux-server service is enabled, which exposes all enabled
services and allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions via a request to tcpmux port 1 (CVE-2012-0862).
The updated packages have been upgraded to the 2.3.15 version which is
not vulnerble to this issue.
Update the affected xinetd and / or xinetd-simple-services packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
