Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: uim
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:046
Date: February 24th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Takumi ASAKI discovered that uim always trusts environment variables which can allow a local attacker to obtain elevated privileges when libuim is linked against an suid/sgid application. This problem is only exploitable in 'immodule for Qt' enabled Qt applications.

The updated packages are patched to fix the problem.
