Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:188
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mono
Date : October 27, 2006
Affected: 2007.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE security team found that the
System.CodeDom.Compiler classes in mono used temporary files in an
insecure way that could allow a symbolic link attack to overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running a program that
made use of those classes.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
