 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:249-1

 Package : newt
 Date    : December 5, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in newt:
 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way newt processes
 content that is to be displayed in a text dialog box. A local attacker
 could issue a specially-crafted text dialog box display request
 (direct or via a custom application), leading to a denial of service
 (application crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the
 privileges of the user running the application using the newt library
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.


 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
