Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : tomboy (MDVSA-2008:064)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 37621
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


A flaw in how tomboy handles LD_LIBRARY_PATH was discovered where by appending paths to LD_LIBRARY_PATH the program would also search the current directory for shared libraries. In directories containing network data, those libraries could be injected into the application.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected tomboy package.
