Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60468
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:064 (tomboy)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:064 (tomboy)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tomboy
announced via advisory MDVSA-2008:064.

A flaw in how tomboy handles LD_LIBRARY_PATH was discovered where by
appending paths to LD_LIBRARY_PATH the program would also search the
current directory for shared libraries. In directories containing
network data, those libraries could be injected into the application.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
