A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 12.10
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

GnuTLS could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:

Details:

Nadhem Alfardan and Kenny Paterson discovered that the TLS protocol as used
in GnuTLS was vulnerable to a timing side-channel attack known as the
"Lucky Thirteen" issue. A remote attacker could use this issue to perform
plaintext-recovery attacks via analysis of timing data.
