Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:154
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : readline
Date : August 6, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated readline packages fix security vulnerability:

Steve Kemp discovered the _rl_tropen() function in readline insecurely
handled a temporary file. This could allow a local attacker to perform
symbolic link attacks (CVE-2014-2524).

Also, upstream patches have been added to fix an infinite loop in vi
input mode, and to fix an issue with slowness when pasting text.
