Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xinitrc (MDKSA-2000:052)
High Nessus Plugin ID 61842
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA problem exists in the /etc/X11/Xsession file which disables the Xauthority mechanism of the localhost. This means that anyone logged into the localhost can arbitrarily connect to an X server running on the localhost. This is only a problem with systems that allow remote logins and is not a problem on systems that do not support remote logins or multiple users.
SolutionUpdate the affected xinitrc package.
