 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:196

 Package : ipmitool
 Date    : December 28, 2011
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in ipmitool:
 ipmievd as used in the ipmitool package uses 0666 permissions for
 its PID file, which allows local users to kill arbitrary
 processes by writing to this file (CVE-2011-4339).
 In Mandriva the ipmievd daemon from the ipmitool package does not
 have an initscript to start and stop the service, however one could
 rather easily craft an initscript or start the service by other means
 rendering the system vulnerable to this issue.
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
