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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 2.2

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that the apr_fnmatch() function used an unconstrained recursion when processing patterns with the '*' wildcard. An attacker could use this flaw to cause an application using this function, which also accepted untrusted input as a pattern for matching (such as an httpd server using the mod_autoindex module), to exhaust all stack memory or use an excessive amount of CPU time when performing matching (CVE-2011-0419).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
