 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2015:104

 Package : elfutils
 Date    : March 29, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0

 Problem Description:

 Updated elfutils packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 The libdw library provides support for accessing DWARF debugging
 information inside ELF files. An integer overflow flaw in
 check_section(), leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found
 in the libdw library. A malicious ELF file could cause an application
 using libdw (such as eu-readelf) to crash or, potentially, execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application
 Directory traversal vulnerability in the read_long_names function in
 libelf/elf_begin.c in elfutils allows remote attackers to write to
 arbitrary files to the root directory via a / (slash) in a crafted
 archive, as demonstrated using the ar program (CVE-2014-9447).
