Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24939


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


A format string error in the 'write_html()' function in calendar/gui/ e-cal-component-memo-preview.c when displaying a memo's categories can potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted shared memo containing format specifiers.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.


Update the affected packages.
