Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : erlang (MDVSA-2015:174)

high Nessus Plugin ID 82484
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated erlang packages fixes security vulnerability :

An FTP command injection flaw was found in Erlang's FTP module.
Several functions in the FTP module do not properly sanitize the input before passing it into a control socket. A local attacker can use this flaw to execute arbitrary FTP commands on a system that uses this module (CVE-2014-1693).

This update also disables SSLv3 by default to mitigate the POODLE issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
