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's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated cabextract packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Libmspack, a library to provide compression and decompression of some file formats used by Microsoft, is embedded in cabextract. A specially crafted cab file can cause cabextract to hang forever. If cabextract is exposed to any remotely-controlled user input, this issue can cause a denial-of-service (CVE-2014-9556).
A directory traversal issue in cabextract allows writing to locations outside of the current working directory, when extracting a crafted cab file that encodes the filenames in a certain manner (CVE-2015-2060).
SolutionUpdate the affected cabextract package.
