Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : freeradius (MDVSA-2012:047)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61948


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


A vulnerability has been found and corrected in freeradius :

The ocsp_check function in rlm_eap_tls.c in FreeRADIUS 2.1.11, when OCSP is enabled, does not properly parse replies from OCSP responders, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication by using the EAP-TLS protocol with a revoked X.509 client certificate (CVE-2011-2701).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
