Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gkrellm (MDKSA-2003:087)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14069
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA buffer overflow was discovered in gkrellmd, the server component of the gkrellm monitor package, in versions of gkrellm 2.1.x prior to 2.1.14. This buffer overflow occurs while reading data from connected gkrellm clients and can lead to possible arbitrary code execution as the user running the gkrellmd server.
Updated packages are available for Mandrake Linux 9.1 which correct the problem.
SolutionUpdate the affected gkrellm, gkrellm-devel and / or gkrellm-server packages.
