New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

Security issues in nss prior to 3.12.3 could lead to a man-in-the-middle attack via a spoofed X.509 certificate (CVE-2009-2408) and md2 algorithm flaws (CVE-2009-2409), and also cause a denial-of-service and possible code execution via a long domain name in X.509 certificate (CVE-2009-2404).

This update provides the latest versions of NSS and NSPR libraries which are not vulnerable to those attacks.

Update :

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers
