-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:104 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : mosh Date : April 10, 2013 Affected: Business Server 1.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated mosh package fixes security vulnerability: Mosh versions 1.2 and earlier allow an application to cause the mosh-server to consume large amounts of CPU time with a short ANSI escape sequence. In addition, a malicious mosh-server can cause the mosh-client to consume large amounts of CPU time with a short ANSI escape sequence. This arises because there was no limit on the value of the repeat parameter in some ANSI escape sequences, so even large and nonsensical values would be interpreted by Mosh&#039;s terminal emulator (CVE-2012-2385). _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 1/X86_64: 8dbc4e336eabdac0478ca8d9a6d9f407 mbs1/x86_64/mosh-1.1.3-2.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 2e83953c0a0358c7922e80eef8fe5b3c mbs1/SRPMS/mosh-1.1.3-2.1.mbs1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
