 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:059-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : xchat
 Date    : December 8, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Python has a variable called sys.path that contains all paths where
 Python loads modules by using import scripting procedure. A wrong
 handling of that variable enables local attackers to execute arbitrary
 code via Python scripting in the current X-Chat working directory
 (CVE-2009-0315).
 
 This update provides fix for that vulnerability.

 Update:

 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
 Corporate products.
