 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:258
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : icu
 Date    : October 28, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated icu packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 It was discovered that ICU contained a race condition affecting
 multi-threaded applications. If an application using ICU processed
 crafted data, an attacker could cause it to crash or potentially
 execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
 program (CVE-2013-0900).
 
 It was discovered that ICU incorrectly handled memory operations. If
 an application using ICU processed crafted data, an attacker could
 cause it to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code with the
 privileges of the user invoking the program (CVE-2013-2924).
