The remote host is missing an update to dbus announced via advisory MDVSA-2009:256-1.
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in dbus: The _dbus_validate_signature_with_reason function (dbus-marshal-validate.c) in D-Bus (aka DBus) uses incorrect logic to validate a basic type, which allows remote attackers to spoof a signature via a crafted key. NOTE: this is due to an incorrect fix for CVE-2008-3834 (CVE-2009-1189). This update provides a fix for this vulnerability. Update: Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for Corporate products. Affected: 2008.0
