Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-08-07 02:17:21 UTC

A flaw was found in the way nettle's RSA decryption functions handled specially crafted ciphertext. An attacker could use this flaw to provide a manipulated ciphertext leading to application crash and denial of service.

So, please stabilize 3.7.3.
