Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77652


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


Updated busybox packages fix security vulnerability :

An integer overflow in liblzo before 2.07 allows attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly code execution in applications using performing LZO decompression on a compressed payload from the attacker (CVE-2014-4607).

Busybox bundles part of the liblzo code, containing the lzo1x_decompress_safe function, which is affected by this issue.
