 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:062
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : shadow-utils
 Date    : March 2, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0,
           Multi Network Firewall 2.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A security vulnerability has been identified and fixed in login
 application from shadow-utils, which could allow local users in
 the utmp group to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on
 a temporary file referenced in a line (aka ut_line) field in a utmp
 entry (CVE-2008-5394).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
 
 Note: Mandriva Linux is using login application from util-linux-ng
 by default, and therefore is not affected by this issue on default
 configuration.
