 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:065
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : boost
 Date    : April 8, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated boost packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 A security flaw was found in the way ordered_malloc() routine
 implementation in Boost, the free peer-reviewed portable C++
 source libraries, performed 'next-size' and 'max_size' parameters
 sanitization, when allocating memory. If an application, using
 the Boost C++ source libraries for memory allocation, was missing
 application-level checks for safety of 'next_size' and 'max_size'
 values, a remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted
 application-specific file (requiring runtime memory allocation it to be
 processed correctly) that, when opened would lead to that application
 crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges
 of the user running the application (CVE-2012-2677).
 
 Boost.Locale library in Boost 1.48 to 1.52 including has a security
 flaw (CVE-2013-0252): boost::locale::utf::utf_traits accepted some
 invalid UTF-8 sequences. Applications that used these functions for
 UTF-8 input validation could expose themselves to security threats
 as invalid UTF-8 sequece would be considered as valid.
 
 The package has been patched to fix above security flaw.
