Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:262
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : python-pycrypto
Date : October 28, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated python-pycrypto package fixes security vulnerability:

In PyCrypto before v2.6.1, the Crypto.Random pseudo-random number
generator (PRNG) exhibits a race condition that may cause it to
generate the same 'random' output in multiple processes that are
forked from each other. Depending on the application, this could
reveal sensitive information or cryptographic keys to remote attackers
(CVE-2013-1445).
