 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:214
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : mon
 Date    : October 16, 2008
 Affected: Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Dmitry E. Oboukhov found that the test.alert script used in one of
 the alert functions in mon created temporary files insecurely, which
 could lead to a local denial of service or arbitrary file overwrite
 via a symlink attack (CVE-2008-4477).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
