Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GnuTLS, allowing a remote
attacker to perform man-in-the-middle or Denial of Service attacks.

Background
==========

GnuTLS is an Open Source implementation of the TLS 1.2 and SSL 3.0
protocols.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/gnutls < 2.12.18 >= 2.12.18

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GnuTLS:

* An error in libgnutls does not properly sanitize "\0" characters from
certificate fields (CVE-2009-2730).
* An error in the TLS and SSL protocols mistreats renegotiation
handshakes (CVE-2009-3555).
* A boundary error in the "gnutls_session_get_data()" function in
gnutls_session.c could cause a buffer overflow (CVE-2011-4128).
* An error in the "_gnutls_ciphertext2compressed()" function in
gnutls_cipher.c could cause memory corruption (CVE-2012-1573).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could perform man-in-the-middle attacks to spoof
arbitrary SSL servers or cause a Denial of Service condition in
applications linked against GnuTLS.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GnuTLS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/gnutls-2.12.18"
