Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:082
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : python-imaging
Date : May 8, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated python-imaging packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Jakub Wilk discovered that temporary files were insecurely created
(via mktemp()) in the IptcImagePlugin.py, Image.py, JpegImagePlugin.py,
and EpsImagePlugin.py files of Python Imaging Library. A local attacker
could use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack to modify an
arbitrary file accessible to the user running an application that
uses the Python Imaging Library (CVE-2014-1932).

Jakub Wilk discovered that temporary files created in the
JpegImagePlugin.py and EpsImagePlugin.py files of the Python Imaging
Library were passed to an external process. These could be viewed
on the command line, allowing an attacker to obtain the name and
possibly perform symbolic link attacks, allowing them to modify an
arbitrary file accessible to the user running an application that
uses the Python Imaging Library (CVE-2014-1933).
