Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : lftp (MDVSA-2015:213)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Updated lftp packages fix security vulnerability :

lftp incorrectly validates wildcard SSL certificates containing
literal IP addresses, so under certain conditions, it would allow and
use a wildcard match specified in the CN field, allowing a malicious
server to participate in a MITM attack or just fool users into
believing that it is a legitimate site (CVE-2014-0139).

lftp was affected by this issue as it uses code from cURL for checking
SSL certificates. The curl package was fixed in MDVSA-2015:098.
