Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36729
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability was found in start_kdeinit in KDE 3.5.5 through 3.5.9 where, if it was installed setuid root, it could allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2008-1671).
By default, start_kdeinit is not installed setuid root on Mandriva Linux, however updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
