Slackware 14.0 / current : gnutls (SSA:2013-242-03)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69521


The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


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about having to reissue this one -- I pulled it from not realizing that the latest version there was actually months out of date.


Update the affected gnutls package.
