                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           texinfo
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:175
 Date:                   October 6th, 2005

 Affected versions:      10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0,
                         Corporate Server 2.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Frank Lichtenheld has discovered that texindex insecurely creates
 temporary files with predictable filenames. This is exploitable if
 a local attacker were to create symbolic links in the temporary files
 directory, pointing to a valid file on the filesystem.   When texindex
 is executed, the file would be overwitten with the rights of the user
 running texindex.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
