Test ID:
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-948-1 (gnutls12)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-948-1 (gnutls12)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to gnutls12
announced via advisory USN-948-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that GnuTLS did not always properly verify the hash
algorithm of X.509 certificates. If an application linked against GnuTLS
processed a crafted certificate, an attacker could make GnuTLS dereference
a NULL pointer and cause a DoS via application crash.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libgnutls12 1.2.9-2ubuntu1.8

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
