Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:071
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : yaml
Date : April 9, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated yaml package fixes security vulnerability

Ivan Fratric of the Google Security Team discovered a heap-based buffer
overflow vulnerability in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and emitter
library. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted YAML
document that, when parsed by an application using libyaml, would cause
the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2014-2525).
