Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:107 (arts).
A vulnerability in the artswrapper program, when installed setuid root,
could enable a local user to elevate their rights to that of root.
By default, Mandriva Linux does not ship artswrapper setuid root,
however if a user or system administrator enables the setuid bit on
artswrapper, their system could be at risk,
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
