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.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated jbigkit packages fix security vulnerability :
Florian Weimer found a stack-based buffer overflow flaw in the libjbig library (part of jbigkit). A specially crafted image file read by libjbig could be used to cause a program linked to libjbig to crash or, potentially, to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-6369).
The jbigkit package has been updated to version 2.1, which fixes this issue, as well as a few other bugs, including the ability of corrupted input data to force the jbig85 decoder into an end-less loop.
SolutionUpdate the affected jbigkit, lib64jbig-devel and / or lib64jbig1 packages.
