                    Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Package name: Eterm
    Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:040
    Date: April 1st, 2003

    Affected versions: 9.0
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Problem Description:

     Digital Defense Inc. released a paper detailing insecurities in various
     terminal emulators, including Eterm. Many of the features supported by
     these programs can be abused when untrusted data is displayed on the
     screen. This abuse can be anything from garbage data being displayed
     to the screen or a system compromise.
     
     These issues are corrected in Eterm 0.9.2, which is already included in
     Mandrake Linux 9.1.

    of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm". A list of
    FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

      http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

    Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
    the downloaded package. You can do this with the command:

      rpm --checksig <filename>

    the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:
