 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:077
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : ettercap
 Date    : April 9, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated ettercap package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 The GTK version of ettercap uses a global settings file
 at /tmp/.ettercap_gtk and does not verify ownership of this
 file. When parsing this file for settings in gtkui_conf_read\(\)
 (src/interfaces/gtk/ec_gtk_conf.c), an unchecked sscanf\(\) call allows
 a maliciously placed settings file to overflow a statically-sized
 buffer on the stack (CVE-2010-3843).
