Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the GNU TLS
library, which provides common cryptographic algorithms and is used by
many applications in Ubuntu. Due to a missing sanity check of the
padding length field, specially crafted ciphertext blocks caused an
out of bounds memory access which could crash the application. It was
not possible to exploit this to execute any attacker specified code.
Update the affected packages.
