 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2015:017
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libevent
 Date    : January 8, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libevent packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 Andrew Bartlett of Catalyst reported a defect affecting certain
 applications using the Libevent evbuffer API. This defect leaves
 applications which pass insanely large inputs to evbuffers open
 to a possible heap overflow or infinite loop. In order to exploit
 this flaw, an attacker needs to be able to find a way to provoke the
 program into trying to make a buffer chunk larger than what will fit
 into a single size_t or off_t (CVE-2014-6272).
