F5 Networks BIG-IP : GnuTLS vulnerability (SOL15637)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78199


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


The _gnutls_ciphertext2compressed function in lib/gnutls_cipher.c in GnuTLS 2.12.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read and crash) via a crafted padding length. NOTE: this might be due to an incorrect fix for CVE-2013-0169.


Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL15637.
