An unsanitized string received from a remote device can be passed to a system() call resulting in arbitrary command execution under the privileges of the wpa_cli/hostapd_cli process (which may be root in common use cases) (CVE-2014-3686). Using the Mandriva wpa_supplicant package, systems are exposed to the vulnerability if operating as a WPS registrar. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-3686 http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0429.html _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 2/X86_64: dbd52ddc6494b7692d047d0172fcd2f1 mbs2/x86_64/wpa_supplicant-2.0-3.1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm 689cc6ca178cbde9c4f176da99cc149c mbs2/SRPMS/wpa_supplicant-2.0-3.1.mbs2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
