 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:117
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python-pycrypto
 Date    : July 27, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in python-pycrypto:
 
 PyCrypto before 2.6 does not produce appropriate prime numbers when
 using an ElGamal scheme to generate a key, which reduces the signature
 space or public key space and makes it easier for attackers to conduct
 brute force attacks to obtain the private key (CVE-2012-2417).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
