Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : stunnel (MDVSA-2013:130)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66142


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated stunnel packages fix security vulnerability :

stunnel 4.21 through 4.54, when CONNECT protocol negotiation and NTLM authentication are enabled, does not correctly perform integer conversion, which allows remote proxy servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted request that triggers a buffer overflow (CVE-2013-1762).

The updated packages also fixes the following :

- move library subpackages back into main stunnel package

- add a systemd unit file (partially fixing Bug 3951)

- fix issues with stunnel.conf and stunnel.pem, with stunnel running in a chroot environment.


Update the affected stunnel package.
