The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Updated emacs packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Untrusted search path vulnerability in EDE in CEDET before 1.0.1, as
used in GNU Emacs before 23.4 and other products, allows local users
to gain privileges via a crafted Lisp expression in a Project.ede file
in the directory, or a parent directory, of an opened file
lisp/files.el in Emacs 23.2, 23.3, 23.4, and 24.1 automatically
executes eval forms in local-variable sections when the
enable-local-variables option is set to :safe, which allows
user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary Emacs Lisp code
via a crafted file (CVE-2012-3479).
Additionally a problem was fixed reading xz compressed files
