The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in perl-IO-Socket-SSL :
IO::Socket::SSL Perl module 1.35, when verify_mode is not VERIFY_NONE,
fails open to VERIFY_NONE instead of throwing an error when a
ca_file/ca_path cannot be verified, which allows remote attackers to
bypass intended certificate restrictions (CVE-2010-4334).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected perl-IO-Socket-SSL package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.5
Public Exploit Available : true
