Summary

Insight

Insight

The GnuTLS library provides support for cryptographic algorithms and for protocols such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). A flaw was discovered in the way GnuTLS handles NULL characters in certain fields of X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a Certificate Authority trusted by an application using GnuTLS, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse the application into accepting it by mistake. (CVE-2009-2730) Users of GnuTLS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch that corrects this issue.
