Fedora 19 : mingw-gnutls-3.1.25-1.fc19 (2014-6963)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 74413


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.

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.


Update the affected mingw-gnutls package.
