                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           masqmail
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:168
 Date:                   September 20th, 2005

 Affected versions:      Multi Network Firewall 2.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Jens Steube discovered two vulnerabilities in masqmail:
 
 When sending failed mail messages, the address was not properly
 sanitized which could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary
 commands as the mail user (CAN-2005-2662).
 
 When opening the log file, masqmail did not relinquish privileges,
 which could allow a local attacker to overwrite arbitrary files via a
 symlink attack (CAN-2005-2663).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
