Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:211
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : wpa_supplicant
Date : October 29, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated wpa_supplicant packages fix security vulnerability:

A vulnerability was found in the mechanism wpa_cli and hostapd_cli use
for executing action scripts. An unsanitized string received from a
remote device can be passed to a system() call resulting in arbitrary
command execution under the privileges of the wpa_cli/hostapd_cli
process (which may be root in common use cases) (CVE-2014-3686).

Using the wpa_supplicant package, systems are exposed to the
vulnerability if operating as a WPS registrar.
