Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Mandrake The pseudo-random number generator in OpenSSL versions up to 0.9.6a has a design flaw.

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           openssl
Date:                   July 18th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:065

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 The pseudo-random number generator in OpenSSL versions up to 0.9.6a has
 a design flaw.  By knowing the output of specific PRNG requests, an
 attacker would be able to determine the PRNG's internal state and thus
 predict future PRNG output.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
