The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in nss :
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).
Additionally the NSPR package has been upgraded to 4.8.4 that brings
numerous upstream fixes.
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
This update provides the latest versions of NSS and NSPR libraries and
for which NSS is not vulnerable to this attack.
