Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : iproute2 (MDVSA-2011:135)

High Nessus Plugin ID 61927


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


It was discovered that the iproute2 package was not rebuilt against the latest iptables libraries.

This may have security issues, as the current iproute2 should be calling an interface in the iptables libraries with incorrect arguments.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
