Updated ipmitool packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 11 Apr 2023
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2020-5208


It's been found that multiple functions in ipmitool before 1.8.19 neglect
proper checking of the data received from a remote LAN party, which may
lead to buffer overflows and potentially to remote code execution on the
ipmitool side. This is especially dangerous if ipmitool is run as a
privileged user. This problem is fixed in version 1.8.19. (CVE-2020-5208)
