Updated freeradius package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 28 Jul 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4 , 5
CVE: CVE-2015-4680


The FreeRADIUS server relies on OpenSSL to perform certificate validation,
including Certificate Revocation List (CRL) checks. The FreeRADIUS usage
of OpenSSL, in CRL application, limits the checks to leaf certificates,
therefore not detecting revocation of intermediate CA certificates. An
unexpired client certificate, issued by an intermediate CA with a revoked
certificate, is therefore accepted by FreeRADIUS (CVE-2015-4680).

The freeradius package has been updated to version 2.2.8, which fixes this
issue, as well as the failure to run on Mageia 5 due to an OpenSSL issue.
