Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : freetype2 (MDVSA-2009:243-2)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 41051
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

This update corrects the problem.

Update :

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers
