http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : python-OpenSSL
Date : September 13, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in python-OpenSSL:

The string formatting of subjectAltName X509Extension instances in
pyOpenSSL before 0.13.1 incorrectly truncated fields of the name when
encountering a null byte, possibly allowing man-in-the-middle attacks
through certificate spoofing (CVE-2013-4314).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
