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: 4


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


Updated lftp packages fix security vulnerability :

lftp incorrectly validates wildcard SSL certificates containing literal IP addresses, so under certain conditions, it would allow and use a wildcard match specified in the CN field, allowing a malicious server to participate in a MITM attack or just fool users into believing that it is a legitimate site (CVE-2014-0139).

lftp was affected by this issue as it uses code from cURL for checking SSL certificates. The curl package was fixed in MDVSA-2015:098.


Update the affected lftp, lib64lftp-devel and / or lib64lftp0 packages.
