The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
Updated keepalived package fixes security vulnerability :
The pidfile_write function in core/pidfile.c in keepalived 1.2.2 and
earlier uses 0666 permissions for the (1) keepalived.pid, (2)
checkers.pid, and (3) vrrp.pid files in /var/run/, which allows local
users to kill arbitrary processes by writing a PID to one of these
A security issue due to syslog being used inside of sighandlers has
also been fixed.
Finally, keepalived was failing to load the ip_vs kernel module
because of an incorrect modprobe option. This has also been corrected.
Update the affected keepalived package.
