Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:152
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

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

Problem Description:

Updated glibc packages fix security issues:

Stephane Chazelas discovered that directory traversal issue in locale
handling in glibc. glibc accepts relative paths with .. components
in the LC_* and LANG variables. Together with typical OpenSSH
configurations (with suitable AcceptEnv settings in sshd_config),
this could conceivably be used to bypass ForceCommand restrictions
(or restricted shells), assuming the attacker has sufficient level
of access to a file system location on the host to create crafted
locale definitions there (CVE-2014-0475).

David Reid, Glyph Lefkowitz, and Alex Gaynor discovered a bug where
posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen fails to copy the path argument
(glibc bz #17048) which can, in conjunction with many common memory
management techniques from an application, lead to a use after free,
or other vulnerabilities (CVE-2014-4043).
