The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in perl-Crypt-DSA :
The Crypt::DSA (aka Crypt-DSA) module 1.17 and earlier for Perl, when
/dev/random is absent, uses the Data::Random module, which makes it
easier for remote attackers to spoof a signature, or determine the
signing key of a signed message, via a brute-force attack
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected perl-Crypt-DSA package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.8
Public Exploit Available : true
