Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : fileutils (MDKSA-2002:031)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 13937
The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Wojciech Purczynski reported a race condition in some utilities in the GNU fileutils package that may cause root to delete the entire filesystem. This only affects version 4.1 stable and 4.1.6 development versions, and the authors have fixed this in the latest development version.
