[slackware-security] gnutls (SSA:2008-320-01)

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, and -current to
correctly fix the certificate chain verification issue that the upgrade to
gnutls-2.6.1 attempted to fix. Without this upgrade, processing a certificate
chain containing only one self-signed certificate may cause GnuTLS linked
programs to crash.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnutls-2.6.2-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:
Upgraded to gnutls-2.6.2.
The security fix in gnutls-2.6.1 had a flaw in cases where the
certificate chain contained only one self-signed certificate.
This update fixes the issue.
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
