Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : emacs (MDVSA-2013:076)
High Nessus Plugin ID 66090
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated emacs packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Untrusted search path vulnerability in EDE in CEDET before 1.0.1, as used in GNU Emacs before 23.4 and other products, allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted Lisp expression in a Project.ede file in the directory, or a parent directory, of an opened file (CVE-2012-0035).
lisp/files.el in Emacs 23.2, 23.3, 23.4, and 24.1 automatically executes eval forms in local-variable sections when the enable-local-variables option is set to :safe, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary Emacs Lisp code via a crafted file (CVE-2012-3479).
Additionally a problem was fixed reading xz compressed files (mga#7759).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
