Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : arts (MDKSA-2006:107)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21751


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A vulnerability in the artswrapper program, when installed setuid root, could enable a local user to elevate their privileges to that of root.

By default, Mandriva Linux does not ship artswrapper setuid root, however if a user or system administrator enables the setuid bit on artswrapper, their system could be at risk,

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.


Update the affected packages.
