Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:107-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : acpid
Date : December 3, 2009
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The daemon in acpid before 1.0.10 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption and connectivity loss) by opening
a large number of UNIX sockets without closing them, which triggers
an infinite loop (CVE-2009-0798).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Update:

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.
