NET::SSLeay vulnerability

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 an attacker was able to provide a /tmp/entropy file with known content.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:023
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : perl-Net_SSLeay
Date : January 26, 2006
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0

Problem Description:

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 an
attacker was able to provide a /tmp/entropy file with known content.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
