 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:248
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : xinetd
 Date    : October 10, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated xinetd package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 It was found that xinetd ignored the user and group configuration
 directives for services running under the tcpmux-server service. This
 flaw could cause the associated services to run as root. If there was
 a flaw in such a service, a remote attacker could use it to execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user (CVE-2013-4342).
