                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           shorewall
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:080
 Date:                   August 9th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
			 Multi Network Firewall 8.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 The shorewall package has a vulnerability when creating temporary
 files and directories, which could allow non-root users to overwrite
 arbitrary files on the system.  The updated packages are patched to
 fix the problem.
 
 As well, for Mandrakelinux 10.0, the updated packages have been fixed
 to start shorewall after the network, rather than before.
 
 After updating the package, if shorewall was previously running, you
 may need to issue a "service shorewall restart".
