The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Updated xinetd package fixes security vulnerability :
It was found that xinetd ignored the user and group configuration
directives for services running under the tcpmux-server service. This
flaw could cause the associated services to run as root. If there was
a flaw in such a service, a remote attacker could use it to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user (CVE-2013-4342).
