The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in openssl :
The implementation of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and PKCS #7
in OpenSSL before 0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h does not properly
restrict certain oracle behavior, which makes it easier for
context-dependent attackers to decrypt data via a Million Message
Attack (MMA) adaptive chosen ciphertext attack (CVE-2012-0884).
The mime_param_cmp function in crypto/asn1/asn_mime.c in OpenSSL
before 0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via
a crafted S/MIME message, a different vulnerability than CVE-2006-7250
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Update the affected packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
