 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:191
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : fail2ban
 Date    : July 2, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated fail2ban packages fix CVE-2013-2178
 
 Krzysztof Katowicz-Kowalewski discovered a vulnerability in Fail2ban,
 a log monitoring and system which can act on attack by preventing
 hosts to connect to specified services using the local firewall.
 
 When using Fail2ban to monitor Apache logs, improper input validation
 in log parsing could enable a remote attacker to trigger an IP ban on
 arbitrary addresses, thus causing a denial of service (CVE-2013-2178).
