Title: GnuTLS: Denial of Service (GLSA 201710-15)
A null pointer dereference in GnuTLS might allow attackers to cause
a Denial of Service condition.
GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS and
DTLS protocols and technologies around them.
Vulnerable: < 3.5.13
Unaffected: >= 3.5.13
Architectures: All supported architectures
A null pointer dereference while decoding a status response TLS
extension with valid contents was discovered in GnuTLS.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GnuTLS users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/gnutls-3.5.13"
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
