Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2011-11-09 10:41:56 UTC

Fix only for 2.12 and 3.0. It seems gnutls upstream considers 2.10.x deprecated and provides no more security updates. So it's probably time to unmask latest gnutls versions in portage.

CVE-2011-4128 (
  Buffer overflow in the gnutls_session_get_data function in
  lib/gnutls_session.c in GnuTLS 2.12.x before 2.12.14 and 3.x before 3.0.7,
  when used on a client that performs nonstandard session resumption, allows
  remote TLS servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a
  large SessionTicket.
