Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:146
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : file
Date : July 31, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in file:

file before 5.19 does not properly restrict the amount of data read
during a regex search, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU consumption) via a crafted file that triggers
backtracking during processing of an awk rule. NOTE: this vulnerability
exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-7345 (CVE-2014-3538).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
