Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: gdb
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:095
Date: May 30th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0,
Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team discovered two vulnerabilites in the GNU debugger. The first allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running gdb if they can trick the user into loading a specially crafted executable (CAN-2005-1704).

He also discovered that gdb loads and executes the file .gdbinit in the current directory even if the file belongs to a different user. If a user can be tricked into running gdb in a directory with a malicious .gdbinit file, a local attacker can exploit this to run arbitrary commands with the privileges of the user running gdb (CAN-2005-1705).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
