New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in openldap :

libraries/libldap/tls_o.c in OpenLDAP, when OpenSSL is used, does not properly handle a '�' (NUL) character in a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408 (CVE-2009-3767).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
