Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, and
-current to correctly fix the certificate chain verification issue
that the upgrade to gnutls-2.6.1 attempted to fix. Without this
upgrade, processing a certificate chain containing only one
self-signed certificate may cause GnuTLS linked programs to crash.
