The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Updated rxvt-unicode package fixes security vulnerability :

rxvt-unicode (aka urxvt) before 9.20 is vulnerable to a user-assisted
arbitrary commands execution issue. This can be exploited by the
unprocessed display of certain escape sequences in a crafted text file
or program output. Arbitrary command sequences can be constructed
using this, and unintentionally executed if used in conjunction with
various other escape sequences (CVE-2014-3121).
