tag_insight = "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.

Affected: 2009.0";
tag_solution = "To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi.  The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
