Updated polarssl, pdns & ragel packages fix CVE-2013-5915Publication date: 30 Nov 2013
Affected Mageia releases : 3
Updated polarssl packages fix security vulnerability: The researchers Cyril Arnaud and Pierre-Alain Fouque investigated the PolarSSL RSA implementation and discovered a bias in the implementation of the Montgomery multiplication that we used. For which they then show that it can be used to mount an attack on the RSA key. Although their test attack is done on a local system, there seems to be enough indication that this can properly be performed from a remote system as well (CVE-2013-5915). Also, the pdns package has been updated to work with the updated polarssl.
