                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           leafnode
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:114
 Date:                   July 11th, 2005

 Affected versions:      10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities in the leafnode NNTP server package have
 been found:
 
 A vulnerability in the fetchnews program that could under some
 circumstances cause a wait for input that never arrives, which in
 turn would cause fetchnews to hang (CAN-2004-2068).
 
 Two vulnerabilities in the fetchnews program can cause fetchnews to
 crash when the upstream server closes the connection and leafnode is
 receiving an article header or an article body, which prevent leafnode
 from querying other servers that are listed after that particular
 server in the configuration file (CAN-2005-1453).
 
 Finally, another vulnerability in the fetchnews program could also
 cuase a wait for input that never arrives, causing fetchnews to
 hang (CAN-2005-1911).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
