Updated harbour package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 26 Aug 2014
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-4607

Description

An integer overflow in liblzo before 2.07 allows attackers to cause a
denial of service or possibly code execution in applications using
performing LZO decompression on a compressed payload from the attacker
(CVE-2014-4607).

The harbour is built with a bundled copy of minilzo, which is a part of
liblzo containing the vulnerable code. This update is patched to update
the bundled minilzo to version 2.8.
