 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:005
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : xterm
 Date    : January 11, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered in xterm, which can be exploited
 by malicious people to compromise a user's system. The vulnerability
 is caused due to xterm not properly processing the DECRQSS Device
 Control Request Status String escape sequence. This can be exploited
 to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands by e.g. tricking a
 user into displaying a malicious text file containing a specially
 crafted escape sequence via the more command in xterm (CVE-2008-2383).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
