Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:117
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libcap-ng
Date : June 10, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated libcap-ng packages fix security vulnerability:

capng_lock() in libcap-ng before 0.7.4 sets securebits in an attempt to
prevent regaining capabilities using setuid-root programs. This allows
a user to run setuid programs, such as seunshare from policycoreutils,
as uid 0 but without capabilities, which is potentially dangerous
(CVE-2014-3215).
