Problem description

Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in perl-MDK-Common:

The functions used to write strings into shell like configuration files
by Mandriva tools were not taking care of some special characters. This
could lead to some bugs (like wireless keys containing certain
characters not working), and privilege escalation. This update fixes
that issue by ensuring proper protection of strings.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
