Amazon Linux AMI : gnutls (ALAS-2013-172)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 69731

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that GnuTLS leaked timing information when decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-1619)

Solution

Run 'yum update gnutls' to update your system.
