 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:252-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : perl-IO-Socket-SSL
 Date    : December 5, 2009
 Affected: 2009.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in perl-IO-Socket-SSL:
 
 The verify_hostname_of_cert function in the certificate checking
 feature in IO-Socket-SSL (IO::Socket::SSL) 1.14 through 1.25 only
 matches the prefix of a hostname when no wildcard is used, which
 allows remote attackers to bypass the hostname check for a certificate
 (CVE-2009-3024).
 
 This update provides a fix for this vulnerability.

 Update:

 Packages were missing for 2009.0, this update addresses the problem.
