 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:111
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libgdata
 Date    : July 25, 2012
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in libgdata:
 
 It was found that previously libgdata, a GLib-based library for
 accessing online service APIs using the GData protocol, did not
 perform SSL certificates validation even for secured connections. An
 application, linked against the libgdata library and holding the
 trust about the other side of the connection being the valid owner
 of the certificate, could be tricked into accepting of a spoofed SSL
 certificate by mistake (MITM attack) (CVE-2012-1177).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
