Description David Walser 2017-05-16 00:11:48 CEST
A security issue fixed upstream in menu-cache has been announced:
http://openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2017/05/15/3

Mageia 5 is probably also affected.
Comment 1 Nicolas Salguero 2017-05-16 09:31:13 CEST
Regarding Cauldron, menu-cache-1.0.2-3.mga6 and pcmanfm-1.2.5-2.mga6 already contain the fix.

Suggested advisory:
========================

The updated packages fix a security vulnerability:

Libmenu-cache 1.0.2 insecurely uses /tmp for a socket file, allowing a local user to cause a denial of service (menu unavailability). (CVE-2017-8933)
