libnet-ssleay-perl: weakened cryptographic operations

Package(s):libnet-ssleay-perl CVE #(s):CAN-2005-0106
Created:May 3, 2005 Updated:January 27, 2006
Description: Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that this library used the file /tmp/entropy as a fallback entropy source if a proper source was not set in the environment variable EGD_PATH. This can potentially lead to weakened cryptographic operations if an attacker provides a /tmp/entropy file with known content.
