CVE-2009-2730 gnutls: incorrect verification of SSL certificate with
NUL in name (GNUTLS-SA-2009-4)
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)
