Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : raptor (MDVSA-2012:061)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58830
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
