Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : raptor (MDVSA-2012:061)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

An XML External Entity expansion flaw was found in the way Raptor
processed RDF files. If an application linked against Raptor were to
open a specially crafted RDF file, it could possibly allow a remote
attacker to obtain a copy of an arbitrary local file that the user
running the application had access to. A bug in the way Raptor handled
external entities could cause that application to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application (CVE-2012-0037).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

raptor2 for Mandriva Linux 2011 has been upgraded to the 2.0.7 version
which is not vulnerable to this issue.
