 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:191
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libarchive
 Date    : December 18, 2011
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was discovered in libarchive. If
 a user were tricked into expanding a specially-crafted ISO 9660
 CD-ROM image or tar archive with an application using libarchive,
 it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application
 (CVE-2011-1778).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
