Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:241 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : perl-Crypt-DSA Date : September 25, 2013 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0


Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in perl-Crypt-DSA:

The Crypt::DSA (aka Crypt-DSA) module 1.17 and earlier for Perl, when /dev/random is absent, uses the Data::Random module, which makes it easier for remote attackers to spoof a signature, or determine the signing key of a signed message, via a brute-force attack (CVE-2011-3599).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
