Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : openssl (MDKSA-2007:237)
High Nessus Plugin ID 29234
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA buffer overflow in the DTLS implementation of OpenSSL 0.9.8 could be exploited by attackers to potentially execute arbitrary code. It is questionable as to whether the DTLS support even worked or is used in any applications; as a result this flaw most likely does not affect most Mandriva users.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
