Mandrake 6.1: screen
Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Mandrake By default, screen did not use Unix98 ptys (/dev/pts/*), which resulted in its controlling terminal being world-writable. This is a security bug, which this package cures. Credits go to Red Hat.

Moreover, /etc/profile.d/screen.sh has been rewritten so that it's now totally 
sh-compatible, ie it will also work with other sh-compatible shells (zsh, ash 
to name two of them).

Please upgrade to:
