Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:022
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : augeas
Date : January 24, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated augeas packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Multiple flaws were found in the way Augeas handled configuration files
when updating them. An application using Augeas to update configuration
files in a directory that is writable to by a different user (for
example, an application running as root that is updating files in a
directory owned by a non-root service user) could have been tricked
into overwriting arbitrary files or leaking information via a symbolic
link or mount point attack (CVE-2012-0786, CVE-2012-0787).

A flaw was found in the way Augeas handled certain umask settings
when creating new configuration files. This flaw could result
in configuration files being created as world writable, allowing
unprivileged local users to modify their content (CVE-2013-6412).
