High Nessus Plugin ID 82446

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

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated gcc packages fix the following security issue :

Multiple integer overflow issues were found in libgfortran, the run-time support library for the Fortran compiler. These could possibly be used to crash a Fortran application or cause it to execute arbitrary code CVE-2014-5044).

They also fix the following bugs :

The gcc rtl-optimization sched2 miscompiles syscall sequence wich can cause random panic in glibc and kernel (gcc/PR61801)
