Debian DSA-3408-1 : gnutls26 - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87162
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

It was discovered that GnuTLS, a library implementing the TLS and SSL protocols, incorrectly validates the first byte of padding in CBC modes. A remote attacker can possibly take advantage of this flaw to perform a padding oracle attack.

Solution

Upgrade the gnutls26 packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.12.20-8+deb7u4.
