New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Version 3.1.25 (released 2014-05-30)

- libgnutls: Eliminated memory corruption issue in Server Hello parsing. Issue reported by Joonas Kuorilehto of Codenomicon.

- libgnutls: Increased the maximum certificate size buffer in the PKCS #11 subsystem.

- libgnutls: Check the return code of getpwuid_r() instead of relying on the result value. That avoids issue in certain systems, when using tofu authentication and the home path cannot be determined. Issue reported by Viktor Dukhovni.

Version 3.2.14 (released 2014-05-06)

- libgnutls: Fixed issue with the check of incoming data when two different recv and send pointers have been specified. Reported and investigated by JMRecio.

- libgnutls: Fixed issue in the RSA-PSK key exchange, which would result to illegal memory access if a server hint was provided.

- libgnutls: Fixed client memory leak in the PSK key exchange, if a server hint was provided.

- libgnutls: Several small bug fixes identified using valgrind and the Codenomicon TLS test suite.

- libgnutls: Several small bug fixes found by coverity.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
