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

High Nessus Plugin ID 82484

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.3

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.
