Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:176  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
Package : mtr Date : August 20, 2008 Affected: Corporate 4.0

 Problem Description:

 A stack-based buffer overflow was found in mtr prior to version 0.73  that allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted  DNS PTR record, when called with the --split option (CVE-2008-2357).  

 The updated packages provide mtr 0.73 which corrects this issue.



 Updated Packages:

 Corporate 4.0: c98d0d2dd309c5e2c682f9856fc4a3f4 corporate/4.0/i586/mtr-0.73-0.1.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm 30ec5571b686d8cca39b298ce4e2bf85 corporate/4.0/i586/mtr-gtk-0.73-0.1.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm b7167d193a2deb8fdd9b95d3bcaf4675 corporate/4.0/SRPMS/mtr-0.73-0.1.20060mlcs4.src.rpm
