 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:128

 Package : bash
 Date    : August 9, 2012
 Affected: 2011.

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found and corrected in bash:
 
 A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way bash, the
 GNU Bourne Again shell, expanded certain /dev/fd file names when
 checking file names ('test' command) and evaluating /dev/fd file
 names in conditinal command expressions. A remote attacker could
 provide a specially-crafted Bash script that, when executed, would
 cause the bash executable to crash (CVE-2012-3410).
 
 Additionally the official patches 011 to 037 for bash-4.2 has been
 applied which resolves other issues found, including the CVE-2012-3410
 vulnerability.
