MDKSA-2006:200: rpm Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the rpm package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:200 (rpm).
A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in librpm when the LANG or
LC_ALL environment variable is set to ru_RU.UTF-8 (and possibly other
locales), which could allow for user-assisted attackers to execute
arbitrary code via crafted RPM packages.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
