Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openafs (MDVSA-2008:207)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36969


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


A race condition in OpenAFS 1.3.40 through 1.4.5 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) by simultaneously acquiring and giving back file callbacks (CVE-2007-6599).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.


Update the affected packages.
