New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple integer overflows were found in python's imageop module. If an application written in python used the imageop module to process untrusted images, it could cause the application to crash, enter an infinite loop, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the python interpreter.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
