The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
Updated ettercap package fixes security vulnerability :
The GTK version of ettercap uses a global settings file at
/tmp/.ettercap_gtk and does not verify ownership of this file. When
parsing this file for settings in gtkui_conf_read\(\)
(src/interfaces/gtk/ec_gtk_conf.c), an unchecked sscanf\(\) call
allows a maliciously placed settings file to overflow a
statically-sized buffer on the stack (CVE-2010-3843).
Update the affected ettercap package.
