USN-4233-2: GnuTLS update

23 January 2020

USN-4233-1 marked SHA1 as untrusted in GnuTLS with no workaround.




USN-4233-1 disabled SHA1 being used for digital signature operations in
GnuTLS. In certain network environments, certificates using SHA1 may still
be in use. This update adds the %VERIFY_ALLOW_BROKEN and
%VERIFY_ALLOW_SIGN_WITH_SHA1 priority strings that can be used to
temporarily re-enable SHA1 until certificates can be replaced with a
stronger algorithm.

Original advisory details:

As a security improvement, this update marks SHA1 as being untrusted for
digital signature operations.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
