 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:038
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : freeradius
 Date    : April 5, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated freeradius packages fixes security vulnerabilities:
 
 It was found that the unix module ignored the password expiration
 setting in /etc/shadow. If FreeRADIUS was configured to use this
 module for user authentication, this flaw could allow users with
 an expired password to successfully authenticate, even though their
 access should have been denied (CVE-2011-4966).
 
 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
 certificate (CVE-2012-3547).
