Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69339


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


Updated xymon package fixes security vulnerability :

A security vulnerability has been found in version 4.x of the Xymon Systems Network Monitor tool

The error permits a remote attacker to delete files on the server running the Xymon trend-data daemon xymond_rrd. File deletion is done with the privileges of the user that Xymon is running with, so it is limited to files available to the userid running the Xymon service.
This includes all historical data stored by the Xymon monitoring system. (CVE-2013-4173)


Update the affected xymon and / or xymon-client packages.
