The updated packages have been upgraded to inn 2.5.3 which is not vulnerable to this issue. _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2011: 0fdfb8541c9dde983ada87a196ecc45a 2011/i586/inews-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.i586.rpm 60e226fec04eaa464dbe7a5f2c593713 2011/i586/inn-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.i586.rpm 47326ed2fb59ccdbaa5e6328e09deb95 2011/i586/inn-devel-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.i586.rpm e42adcff2587362f39488faf96f9c496 2011/SRPMS/inn-2.5.3-0.1.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2011/X86_64: f4824198caa2bbc317a14fd592bff6f7 2011/x86_64/inews-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm 7ac20f123163d73f1dc78757a6c1ed88 2011/x86_64/inn-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm eb416372f4e3cebd236a53c89c83eec5 2011/x86_64/inn-devel-2.5.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm e42adcff2587362f39488faf96f9c496 2011/SRPMS/inn-2.5.3-0.1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
