 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:023
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : hplip
 Date    : January 24, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated hplip packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 It was discovered that the HPLIP Polkit daemon incorrectly handled
 temporary files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
 overwrite arbitrary files (CVE-2013-6402).
 
 It was discovered that HPLIP contained an upgrade tool that would
 download code in an unsafe fashion. If a remote attacker were able
 to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited
 to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-6427).
