Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:051
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gettext
Date : February 28, 2006
Affected: Corporate 3.0, Multi Network Firewall 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The Trustix developers discovered temporary file vulnerabilities in the
autopoint and gettextize scripts, part of GNU gettext. These scripts
insecurely created temporary files which could allow a malicious user
to overwrite another user's files via a symlink attack.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
