Description

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in perl-IO-Socket-SSL :

The verify_hostname_of_cert function in the certificate checking feature in IO-Socket-SSL (IO::Socket::SSL) 1.14 through 1.25 only matches the prefix of a hostname when no wildcard is used, which allows remote attackers to bypass the hostname check for a certificate (CVE-2009-3024).

This update provides a fix for this vulnerability.

Update :

Packages were missing for 2009.0, this update addresses the problem.

                                        
                                            #%NASL_MIN_LEVEL 80502
