Mandriva: Updated gpdf packages fix several vulnerabilities  27 January 2006 
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the DCTStream::readProgressiveSOF and DCTStream::readBaselineSOF functions in the DCT stream parsing code (Stream.cc) in xpdf 3.01 and earlier, allow user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of service (heap corruption) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file with an out-of-range number of components (numComps), which is used as an array index. (CVE-2005-3191)
 
Mandriva: Updated net-snmp packages fix vulnerabilities  27 January 2006 
The fixproc application in Net-SNMP creates temporary files with predictable file names which could allow a malicious local attacker to change the contents of the temporary file by exploiting a race condition, which could possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary code. As well, a local attacker could create symbolic links in the /tmp directory that point to a valid file that would then be overwritten when fixproc is executed (CVE-2005-1740). A remote Denial of Service vulnerability was also discovered in the SNMP library that could be exploited by a malicious SNMP server to crash the agent, if the agent uses TCP sockets for communication (CVE-2005-2177). The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
 
Mandriva: Updated apache2 packages fix vulnerabilities  27 January 2006 
A flaw was discovered in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image maps that could be used by a remote attacker to perform a cross- site scripting attack, in certain site configurations, if a victim could be forced to visit a malicious URL using certain web browsers (CVE-2005-3352). Also, a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in mod_ssl that affects server configurations where an SSL virtual host was configured with access controls and a custom 400 error document. This could allow a remote attacker to send a carefully crafted request to trigger the issue and cause a crash, but only with the non-default worker MPM (CVE-2005-3357). The provided packages have been patched to prevent these problems.

Mandriva: New libpaper1 packages provide libpaper1 to x86_64 platform  05 January 2006 
Corporte Desktop 3.0/x86_64 did not ship with the libpaper1 library which prevented the included gpdf and kpdf programs from working. This update provides libpaper1.
