                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           file
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:030
Date:                   March 6th, 2003

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A memory allocation problem in file was found by Jeff Johnson, and a 
 stack overflow corruption problem was found by David Endler.  These 
 problems have been corrected in file version 3.41 and likely affect 
 all previous version.  These problems pose a security threat as they
 can be used to execute arbitrary code by an attacker under the 
 privileges of another user.  Note that the attacker must first
 somehow convince the target user to execute file against a specially
 crafted file that triggers the buffer overflow in file.
