Synopsis
========

A null pointer dereference in GnuTLS might allow attackers to cause a
Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS and
DTLS protocols and technologies around them.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/gnutls < 3.5.13 >= 3.5.13

Description
===========

A null pointer dereference while decoding a status response TLS
extension with valid contents was discovered in GnuTLS.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GnuTLS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/gnutls-3.5.13"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
