Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDKSA-2001:065)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 13880
The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
The pseudo-random number generator in OpenSSL versions up to 0.9.6a has a design flaw. By knowing the output of specific PRNG requests, an attacker would be able to determine the PRNG's internal state and thus predict future PRNG output.
Update the affected openssl and / or openssl-devel packages.
