The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
Updated backuppc packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in RestoreFile.pm in BackupPC
3.1.0, 3.2.1, and possibly other earlier versions allows remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the share
parameter in a RestoreFile action to index.cgi (CVE-2011-5081).
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in View.pm in BackupPC 3.0.0,
3.1.0, 3.2.0, 3.2.1, and possibly earlier allows remote attackers to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the num parameter in a view
action to index.cgi, related to the log file viewer (CVE-2011-4923).
Also, This update package corrects/improves the definition of
variables in config.pl, the configuration file of backuppc: the
variables SshPath, SmbClientPath, NmbLookupPath, TarClientPath,
TopDir. As a result, backuppc should now run with the default values
installed by the Mageia package, modifications of config.pl should
only be required for defining site-specific settings.
Update the affected backuppc package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
