 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:156
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : inn
 Date    : October 2, 2012
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A security issue was identified and fixed in ISC INN:
 
 The STARTTLS implementation in INN's NNTP server for readers, nnrpd,
 before 2.5.3 does not properly restrict I/O buffering, which allows
 man-in-the-middle attackers to insert commands into encrypted sessions
 by sending a cleartext command that is processed after TLS is in place,
 related to a plaintext command injection attack, a similar issue to
 CVE-2011-0411 (CVE-2012-3523).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to inn 2.5.3 which is not
 vulnerable to this issue.
