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


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.
