Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'gnutls'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The GnuTLS library provides support for cryptographic algorithms and for
protocols such as Transport Layer Security (TLS).

It was discovered that GnuTLS leaked timing information when decrypting
TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used.
A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from
the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding oracle.
(CVE-2013-1619)

Users of GnuTLS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take
effect, all applications linked to the GnuTLS library must be restarted,
or the system rebooted.

Affected Software/OS:
gnutls on CentOS 5

Solution:
Please install the updated packages.

CVSS Score:
