Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : tor (MDVSA-2014:150)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77038


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated tor package fixes security vulnerability :

Tor before maintains a circuit after an inbound RELAY_EARLY cell is received by a client, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct traffic-confirmation attacks by using the pattern of RELAY and RELAY_EARLY cells as a means of communicating information about hidden service names (CVE-2014-5117).


Update the affected tor package.
