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.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability was discovered and corrected in gnucash :
gnc-test-env in GnuCash 2.3.15 and earlier places a zero-length directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse shared library in the current working directory (CVE-2010-3999).
The affected /usr/bin/gnc-test-env file has been removed to mitigate the CVE-2010-3999 vulnerability as gnc-test-env is only used for tests and while building gnucash.
Additionally for Mandriva 2010.1 gnucash-2.2.9 was not compatible with guile. This update adapts gnucash to the new API of guile.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
