Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:009  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
Package : kvm Date : January 14, 2009 Affected: 2009.0

 Problem Description:

 Security vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in  VNC server of kvm version 79 and earlier, which could lead to  denial-of-service attacks (CVE-2008-2382), and make it easier for  remote crackers to guess the VNC password (CVE-2008-5714).  

 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
