 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:139

 Package : x11-server
 Date    : April 10, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0

 Problem Description:

 This fixes a format string vulnerability in the LogVHdrMessageVerb
 function in os/log.c when handling input device names in X.Org X11
 server (CVE-2012-2118).
 MBS1 is not vulnerable to arbitrary code execution via this
 vulnerability because of the compiler options that were used to build
 it, but it can still cause a crash.
