Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-430: gnutls

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gnutls packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated GnuTLS packages that fix a remote denial of service
vulnerability are available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

The GnuTLS library implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v3) and Transport
Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols.

A denial of service bug was found in the GnuTLS library versions prior to
1.0.25. A remote attacker could perform a carefully crafted TLS handshake
against a service that uses the GnuTLS library causing the service to
crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-1431 to this issue.

All users of GnuTLS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages and to
restart any services which use GnuTLS.
