Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66363
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandriva Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:107-1 (acpid)
Summary:Mandriva Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:107-1 (acpid)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to acpid
announced via advisory MDVSA-2009:107-1.

The daemon in acpid before 1.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption and connectivity loss) by opening
a large number of UNIX sockets without closing them, which triggers
an infinite loop (CVE-2009-0798).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Update:

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.

Affected: 2008.0

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