 Problem Description:

 Updated python3 packages fix security vulnerabilities:

 ZipExtFile.read goes into 100% CPU infinite loop on maliciously binary
 edited zips (CVE-2013-7338).

 A vulnerability was reported in Python's socket module, due to
 a boundary error within the sock_recvfrom_into() function, which
 could be exploited to cause a buffer overflow.  This could be used
 to crash a Python application that uses the socket.recvfrom_info()
 function or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the permissions
 of the user running vulnerable Python code (CVE-2014-1912).

 It was reported that a patch added to Python 3.2 caused a race
 condition where a file created could be created with world read/write
 permissions instead of the permissions dictated by the original umask
 of the process. This could allow a local attacker that could win the

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in openldap:

 The deref_parseCtrl function in servers/slapd/overlays/deref.c in
 OpenLDAP 2.4.13 through 2.4.40 allows remote attackers to cause a
 denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via an empty
 attribute list in a deref control in a search request (CVE-2015-1545).

 The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in openldap:

 The deref_parseCtrl function in servers/slapd/overlays/deref.c in
 OpenLDAP 2.4.13 through 2.4.40 allows remote attackers to cause a
 denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via an empty
 attribute list in a deref control in a search request (CVE-2015-1545).

 Double free vulnerability in the get_vrFilter function in
 servers/slapd/filter.c in OpenLDAP 2.4.40 allows remote attackers to
 cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted search query with a
 matched values control (CVE-2015-1546).

 The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : gnutls
 Date    : March 27, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated gnutls packages fix security vulnerabilities:

 Suman Jana reported a vulnerability that affects the certificate
 verification functions of gnutls 3.1.x and gnutls 3.2.x. A version
 1 intermediate certificate will be considered as a CA certificate
 by default (something that deviates from the documented behavior)
 (CVE-2014-1959).

 It was discovered that GnuTLS did not correctly handle certain errors
 that could occur during the verification of an X.509 certificate,
 causing it to incorrectly report a successful verification. An attacker
 could use this flaw to create a specially crafted certificate that
 could be accepted by GnuTLS as valid for a site chosen by the attacker
 (CVE-2014-0092).

 A NULL pointer dereference flaw was discovered in GnuTLS's

 Package : libpng12
 Date    : March 27, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libpng12 package fixes security vulnerabilities:

 The png_do_expand_palette function in libpng before 1.6.8 allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
 application crash) via a PLTE chunk of zero bytes or a NULL palette,
 related to pngrtran.c and pngset.c (CVE-2013-6954).

 An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found
 in the png_set_sPLT() and png_set_text_2() API functions of libpng. An
 attacker could create a specially-crafted image file and render it
 with an application written to explicitly call png_set_sPLT() or
 png_set_text_2() function, could cause libpng to crash or execute
 arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running such an
 application (CVE-2013-7353).

 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libvirt
 Date    : March 27, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libvirt packages fixes security vulnerabilities:

 The qemuDomainMigratePerform and qemuDomainMigrateFinish2 functions
 in qemu/qemu_driver.c in libvirt do not unlock the domain when an
 ACL check fails, which allow local users to cause a denial of service
 via unspecified vectors (CVE-2014-8136).

 The XML getters for for save images and snapshots objects don't
 check ACLs for the VIR_DOMAIN_XML_SECURE flag and might possibly dump
 security sensitive information. A remote attacker able to establish
 a connection to libvirtd could use this flaw to cause leak certain
 limited information from the domain xml file (CVE-2015-0236).

 The updated packages provides the latest 1.1.3.9 version whish has
 more robust fixes for MDVSA-2015:023 and MDVSA-2015:035.

 Problem Description:

 Updated cpio package fixes security vulnerability:

 In GNU Cpio 2.11, the --no-absolute-filenames option limits
 extracting contents of an archive to be strictly inside a current
 directory. However, it can be bypassed with symlinks. While extracting
 an archive, it will extract symlinks and then follow them if they
 are referenced in further entries. This can be exploited by a rogue
 archive to write files outside the current directory (CVE-2015-1197).
