SuSE 11.3 Security Update : GnuTLS (SAT Patch Number 10536)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82639
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

GnuTLS was updated to fix two security issues :

- A certificate algorithm consistency checking issue was fixed, where GnuTLS did not check whether the two signature algorithms match on certificate import. This problem is not deemed to be exploitable currently.
(CVE-2015-0294)

- GNUTLS-SA-2015-1: GnuTLS did not verify the RSA PKCS #1 signature algorithm to match the signature algorithm in the certificate, leading to a potential downgrade to a disallowed algorithm, such as MD5, without detecting it.
(CVE-2015-0282)

Solution

Apply SAT patch number 10536.
