-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:096 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : python-jinja2 Date : May 16, 2014 Affected: Business Server 1.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated python-jinja2 packages fix security vulnerability: Jinja2, a template engine written in pure python, was found to use /tmp as a default directory for jinja2.bccache.FileSystemBytecodeCache, which is insecure because the /tmp directory is world-writable and the filenames used like &#039;FileSystemBytecodeCache&#039; are often predictable. A malicious user could exploit this bug to execute arbitrary code as another user (CVE-2014-1402). _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 1/X86_64: 337681a1ea4bb5e8fd0eb3fd2f727da7 mbs1/x86_64/python-jinja2-2.5.5-8.1.mbs1.noarch.rpm f54e7033fcd7650bd886e83e5fa51d44 mbs1/SRPMS/python-jinja2-2.5.5-8.1.mbs1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
