Mandrake Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in openssl: ssl/s3_pkt.c in OpenSSL before 0.9.8i allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via a DTLS ChangeCipherSpec packet that occurs before ClientHello (CVE-2009-1386). The NSS library library before 3.12.3, as used in Firefox; GnuTLS before 2.6.4 and 2.7.4; OpenSSL 0.9.8 through 0.9.8k; and other products support MD2 with X.509 certificates, which might allow remote attackers to spooof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation required is still large (CVE-2009-2409). This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.

 Package : openssl

 Affected: Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0, Multi Network Firewall 2.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in openssl:
 
 ssl/s3_pkt.c in OpenSSL before 0.9.8i allows remote attackers to
 cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash)
 via a DTLS ChangeCipherSpec packet that occurs before ClientHello
 (CVE-2009-1386).
 
 The NSS library library before 3.12.3, as used in Firefox; GnuTLS
 before 2.6.4 and 2.7.4; OpenSSL 0.9.8 through 0.9.8k; and other
 products support MD2 with X.509 certificates, which might allow
 remote attackers to spooof certificates by using MD2 design flaws
 to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time.  NOTE:
 the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of
 computation required is still large (CVE-2009-2409).
 
 This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.
