 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:154
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : readline
 Date    : August 6, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated readline packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 Steve Kemp discovered the _rl_tropen() function in readline insecurely
 handled a temporary file. This could allow a local attacker to perform
 symbolic link attacks (CVE-2014-2524).
 
 Also, upstream patches have been added to fix an infinite loop in vi
 input mode, and to fix an issue with slowness when pasting text.
