 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:159

 Package : freeradius
 Date    : October 3, 2012
 Affected: 2011.

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in freeradius:
 Stack-based buffer overflow in the cbtls_verify function in FreeRADIUS
 2.1.10 through 2.1.12, when using TLS-based EAP methods, allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) and possibly
 execute arbitrary code via a long not after timestamp in a client
