Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Updated tor package fixes security vulnerability :

Tor before 0.2.4.23 maintains a circuit after an inbound RELAY_EARLY
cell is received by a client, which makes it easier for remote
attackers to conduct traffic-confirmation attacks by using the pattern
of RELAY and RELAY_EARLY cells as a means of communicating information
about hidden service names (CVE-2014-5117).
