Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated openssl packages fix security vulnerability :

A read buffer can be freed even when it still contains data that is
used later on, leading to a use-after-free. Given a race condition in
a multi-threaded application it may permit an attacker to inject data
from one connection into another or cause denial of service
(CVE-2010-5298).

Also fixed in this update is a potential security issue with detection
of the critical flag for the TSA extended key usage under certain
cases.
