 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:147
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libarchive
 Date    : April 19, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in libarchive:
 
 Fabian Yamaguchi reported a read buffer overflow flaw in
 libarchive on 64-bit systems where sizeof(size_t) is equal
 to 8. In the archive_write_zip_data() function in libarchive/
 archive_write_set_format_zip.c, the "s" parameter is of type size_t
 (64 bit, unsigned) and is cast to a 64 bit signed integer. If "s" is
 larger than MAX_INT, it will not be set to "zip->remaining_data_bytes"
 even though it is larger than "zip->remaining_data_bytes", which
 leads to a buffer overflow when calling deflate(). This can lead to a
 segfault in an application that uses libarchive to create ZIP archives
 (CVE-2013-0211).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
