Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : not-yet-commons-ssl (MDVSA-2015:141)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated not-yet-commons-ssl packages fixes security vulnerability :

It was discovered that the implementation used by the Not Yet Commons
SSL project to check that the server hostname matches the domain name
in the subject's CN field was flawed. This can be exploited by a
Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, where the attacker can spoof a valid
certificate using a specially crafted subject (CVE-2014-3604).
