Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

SecurityFocus reports :

GnuTLS is prone to multiple remote vulnerabilities :

- A remote code-execution vulnerability.

- A denial-of-service vulnerability.

- A signature-generation vulnerability.

- A signature-verification vulnerability.

An attacker can exploit these issues to potentially execute arbitrary
code, trigger denial-of-service conditions, carry out attacks against
data signed with weak signatures, and cause clients to accept expired
or invalid certificates from servers.
