Mandriva: Updated openssl packages fix DTLS vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A buffer overflow in the DTLS implementation of OpenSSL 0.9.8 could be exploited by attackers to potentially execute arbitrary code. It is questionable as to whether the DTLS support even worked or is used in any applications; as a result this flaw most likely does not affect most Mandriva users. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issue.
