Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : freerdp (MDVSA-2015:171)

high Nessus Plugin ID 82447
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


Updated freerdp packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Integer overflows in memory allocations in client/X11/xf_graphics.c in FreeRDP through 1.0.2 allows remote RDP servers to have an unspecified impact through unspecified vectors (CVE-2014-0250).

Integer overflow in the license_read_scope_list function in libfreerdp/core/license.c in FreeRDP through 1.0.2 allows remote RDP servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large ScopeCount value in a Scope List in a Server License Request packet (CVE-2014-0791).


Update the affected freerdp, lib64freerdp-devel and / or lib64freerdp1 packages.
