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 libcap-ng packages fix security vulnerability :
capng_lock() in libcap-ng before 0.7.4 sets securebits in an attempt to prevent regaining capabilities using setuid-root programs. This allows a user to run setuid programs, such as seunshare from policycoreutils, as uid 0 but without capabilities, which is potentially dangerous (CVE-2014-3215).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
