medium Nessus Plugin ID 69521
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 14.0 and -current to fix a security issue. Sorry about having to reissue this one -- I pulled it from ftp.gnu.org not realizing that the latest version there was actually months out of date.

Solution

Update the affected gnutls package.
