   UNIRAS (UK Govt CERT) Briefing Notice - 456/05 dated 16.06.05  Time: 14:30  
  UNIRAS is part of NISCC (National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre)

Title
=====

Two Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisories:

1. MDKSA-2005:101 - tcpdump
             
2. MDKSA-2005:102 - gedit
             
Detail
====== 

1. A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in tcpdump during the
 processing of certain network packages.  Because of this flaw, it was
 possible for an attacker to inject a carefully crafted packet onto the
 network which would crash a running tcpdump session.

2. A vulnerability was discovered in gEdit where it was possible for an
 attacker to create a file with a carefully crafted name which, when
 opened, executed arbitrary code on the victim's computer.  It is
 highly unlikely that a user would open such a file, due to the file
 name, but could possibly be tricked into opening it.
