Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in openssl :

The DTLS retransmission implementation in OpenSSL through 0.9.8y and
1.x through 1.0.1e does not properly maintain data structures for
digest and encryption contexts, which might allow man-in-the-middle
attackers to trigger the use of a different context by interfering
with packet delivery, related to ssl/d1_both.c and ssl/t1_enc.c
(CVE-2013-6450).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
