The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in python-pycrypto :
PyCrypto before 2.6 does not produce appropriate prime numbers when
using an ElGamal scheme to generate a key, which reduces the signature
space or public key space and makes it easier for attackers to conduct
brute-force attacks to obtain the private key (CVE-2012-2417).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected python-pycrypto package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
