5 April 2012
The GnuTLS library could be made to crash under certain conditions.
- gnutls13 - the GNU TLS library - commandline utilities
- gnutls26 - the GNU TLS library - commandline utilities
Alban Crequy discovered that the GnuTLS library incorrectly checked array
bounds when copying TLS session data. A remote attacker could crash a client
application, leading to a denial of service, as the client application prepared
for TLS session resumption. (CVE-2011-4128)
Matthew Hall discovered that the GnuTLS library incorrectly handled TLS
records. A remote attacker could crash client and server applications, leading
to a denial of service, by sending a crafted TLS record. (CVE-2012-1573)
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
