SuSE 11.3 Security Update : GnuTLS (SAT Patch Number 10536)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

GnuTLS was updated to fix two security issues :

- A certificate algorithm consistency checking issue was
fixed, where GnuTLS did not check whether the two
signature algorithms match on certificate import. This
problem is not deemed to be exploitable currently.

- GNUTLS-SA-2015-1: GnuTLS did not verify the RSA PKCS #1
signature algorithm to match the signature algorithm in
the certificate, leading to a potential downgrade to a
disallowed algorithm, such as MD5, without detecting it.
