Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in openssl :

The elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) subsystem in OpenSSL 1.0.0d and
earlier, when the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA)
is used for the ECDHE_ECDSA cipher suite, does not properly implement
curves over binary fields, which makes it easier for context-dependent
attackers to determine private keys via a timing attack and a lattice
calculation (CVE-2011-1945).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
