                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           WindowMaker
Date:                   August 31st, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:074

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow exists in the WindowMaker window manager's window
 title handling code, as discovered by Alban Hertroys.  Many programs,
 such as web browsers, set the window title to something obtained from
 the network, such as the title of the currently-viewed web page.  As
 such, this buffer overflow could be exploited remotely.  WindowMaker
 versions above and including 0.65.1 are fixed upstream; these packages
 have been patched to correct the problem.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team at
   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
