Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72808
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionGnuTLS project reports :
A vulnerability was discovered that affects the certificate verification functions of all gnutls versions. A specially crafted certificate could bypass certificate validation checks. The vulnerability was discovered during an audit of GnuTLS for Red Hat.
Suman Jana reported a vulnerability that affects the certificate verification functions of gnutls 2.11.5 and later versions. A version 1 intermediate certificate will be considered as a CA certificate by default (something that deviates from the documented behavior).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
