The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A security issue was identified and fixed in ISC INN :
The STARTTLS implementation in INN's NNTP server for readers, nnrpd,
before 2.5.3 does not properly restrict I/O buffering, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to insert commands into encrypted sessions
by sending a cleartext command that is processed after TLS is in
place, related to a plaintext command injection attack, a similar
issue to CVE-2011-0411 (CVE-2012-3523).
The updated packages have been upgraded to inn 2.5.3 which is not
vulnerable to this issue.
