Debian Security Advisory DSA-2866-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Salvatore Bonaccorso February 22, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : gnutls26 Vulnerability : certificate verification flaw CVE ID : CVE-2014-1959

Suman Jana reported that GnuTLS, deviating from the documented behavior, considers a version 1 intermediate certificate as a CA certificate by default.

The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by this problem as X.509 version 1 trusted CA certificates are not allowed by default.

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

For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.12.23-12.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnutls26 packages.
