Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51992

Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in openssl :

Incorrectly formatted ClientHello handshake message could cause OpenSSL to parse past the end of the message. This allows an attacker to crash an application using OpenSSL by triggering an invalid memory access. Additionally, some applications may be vulnerable to expose contents of a parsed OCSP nonce extension (CVE-2011-0014).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
