- More information:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuTLS, a library implementing the TLS and SSL protocols. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Missing date/time checks on CA certificates
GnuTLS does 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 without detecting it.
GnuTLS does not check whether the two signature algorithms match on certificate import.
For Debian 6
Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in gnutls26 version 2.8.6-1+squeeze5
