Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:107
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : arts
Date : June 20, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability in the artswrapper program, when installed setuid root,
could enable a local user to elevate their privileges to that of root.

By default, Mandriva Linux does not ship artswrapper setuid root,
however if a user or system administrator enables the setuid bit on
artswrapper, their system could be at risk,

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
