Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:241
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : perl-Crypt-DSA
Date : September 25, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in perl-Crypt-DSA:

The Crypt::DSA (aka Crypt-DSA) module 1.17 and earlier for Perl,
when /dev/random is absent, uses the Data::Random module, which makes
it easier for remote attackers to spoof a signature, or determine
the signing key of a signed message, via a brute-force attack
(CVE-2011-3599).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
