New GnuTLS buffer overflow

in security on (#3ND)
story imageAnother week, another buffer overflow in a crypto library! This time, GnuTLS is the culprit as it misses the length checks for the session ID in the ServerHello message. Because most server applications choose OpenSSL over GnuTLS, the list of affected packages is actually rather small - but make sure your systems are up to date regardless.

Thanks for that. The list of affected packages is small, the list of affected systems...quite something else really.
