Slackware 12.0 / 12.1 / current : gnutls (SSA:2008-315-01)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 34731
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew gnutls packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, and
-current to fix a security issue. NOTE: The package for 12.0 has a different shared library soname, and the packages for 12.1 and
-current have an API/ABI change. Only the Pidgin package in Slackware links with GnuTLS, and upgraded Pidgin packages have also been made available. However, if the updated GnuTLS package is installed any other custom-compiled software that uses GnuTLS may need to be recompiled.
SolutionUpdate the affected gnutls package.
