Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:023: perl-Net_SSLeay

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the perl-Net_SSLeay package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:023 (perl-Net_SSLeay).



Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that the perl Net::SSLeay module used
the file /tmp/entropy as a fallback entropy source if a proper source was not
set via the environment variable EGD_PATH. This could potentially lead to
weakened cryptographic operations if a possible hacker was able to provide a /tmp/
entropy file with known content. The updated packages have been patched to
correct this problem.
