 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:105
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : munin
 Date    : April 10, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated munin packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 The qmailscan plugin for Munin before 2.0 rc6 allows local users to
 overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files
 with predictable names (CVE-2012-2103).
 
 Munin before 2.0.6 stores plugin state files that run as root in
 the same group-writable directory as non-root plugins, which allows
 local users to execute arbitrary code by replacing a state file,
 as demonstrated using the smart_ plugin (CVE-2012-3512).
 
 munin-cgi-graph in Munin before 2.0.6, when running as a CGI module
 under Apache, allows remote attackers to load new configurations
 and create files in arbitrary directories via the logdir command
 (CVE-2012-3513).
