Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:096
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : stunnel
Date : March 28, 2015
Affected: Business Server 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated stunnel package fixes security vulnerability:

A flaw was found in the way stunnel, a socket wrapper which can provide
SSL support to ordinary applications, performed (re)initialization of
PRNG after fork. When accepting a new connection, the server forks and
the child process handles the request. The RAND_bytes() function of
openssl doesn't reset its state after the fork, but seeds the PRNG
with the output of time(NULL). The most important consequence is
that servers using EC (ECDSA) or DSA certificates may under certain
conditions leak their private key (CVE-2014-0016).

The updated packages fix this issue by using threads instead of new
processes to handle connections.

Also an issue has been corrected where the directory for the pid file
was not being created when the package is installed.

An issue currently exists in Mageia 4 where it fails trying to use
FIPS SSL (mga#13124). This can be worked around by adding fips =
no into the config.
