 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:056
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : rpm
 Date    : April 12, 2012
 Affected: 2010.1, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple flaws were found in the way RPM parsed package file
 headers. An attacker could create a specially-crafted RPM package that,
 when its package header was accessed, or during package signature
 verification, could cause an application using the RPM library
 to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2012-0060,
 CVE-2012-0061, CVE-2012-0815).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
