New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionTesting using the Codenomicon TLS test suite discovered a flaw in the handling of server name extension data in OpenSSL 0.9.8f and OpenSSL 0.9.8g. If OpenSSL has been compiled using the non-default TLS server name extensions, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted packet to a server application using OpenSSL and cause a crash.
Testing using the Codenomicon TLS test suite discovered a flaw if the 'Server Key exchange message' is omitted from a TLS handshake in OpenSSL 0.9.8f and OpenSSL 0.9.8g. If a client connects to a malicious server with particular cipher suites, the server could cause the client to crash. (CVE-2008-1672)
The updated packages have been patched to fix these flaws.
Note that any applications using this library must be restarted for the update to take effect.
