Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A vulnerability has been identified and corrected in proftpd :

The TLS protocol, and the SSL protocol 3.0 and possibly earlier, as
used in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, mod_ssl in
the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 and earlier, OpenSSL before 0.9.8l,
GnuTLS 2.8.5 and earlier, Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS)
3.12.4 and earlier, and other products, does not properly associate
renegotiation handshakes with an existing connection, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to insert data into HTTPS sessions, and
possibly other types of sessions protected by TLS or SSL, by sending
an unauthenticated request that is processed retroactively by a server
in a post-renegotiation context, related to a plaintext injection
attack, aka the Project Mogul issue (CVE-2009-3555).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
customers.
