Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49117
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been found and corrected in lvm2 :
The cluster logical volume manager daemon (clvmd) in lvm2-cluster in LVM2 before 2.02.72, as used in Red Hat Global File System (GFS) and other products, does not verify client credentials upon a socket connection, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (daemon exit or logical-volume change) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted control commands (CVE-2010-2526).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
