Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:213
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : xymon
Date : August 13, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated xymon package fixes security vulnerability:

A security vulnerability has been found in version 4.x of the Xymon
Systems & Network Monitor tool

The error permits a remote attacker to delete files on the server
running the Xymon trend-data daemon xymond_rrd. File deletion is
done with the privileges of the user that Xymon is running with,
so it is limited to files available to the userid running the Xymon
service. This includes all historical data stored by the Xymon
monitoring system. (CVE-2013-4173)
