 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:041
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : jhead
 Date    : February 17, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Security vulnerabilies have been identified and fixed in jhead.
 
 Buffer overflow in the DoCommand function in jhead before 2.84 might
 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
 (CVE-2008-4575).
 
 Jhead before 2.84 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files
 via a symlink attack on a temporary file (CVE-2008-4639).
 
 Jhead 2.84 and earlier allows local users to delete arbitrary files
 via vectors involving a modified input filename (CVE-2008-4640).
 
 jhead 2.84 and earlier allows attackers to execute arbitrary commands
 via shell metacharacters in unspecified input (CVE-2008-4641).
 
 This update provides the latest Jhead to correct these issues.
