Updated gnutls packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 22 Jul 2017
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 5
CVE: CVE-2017-7869 , CVE-2017-7507


GnuTLS before 2017-02-20 has an out-of-bounds write caused by an integer
overflow and heap-based buffer overflow related to the cdk_pkt_read
function in opencdk/read-packet.c. This issue (which is a subset of the
vendor's GNUTLS-SA-2017-3 report) is fixed in 3.5.10. (CVE-2017-7869)

GnuTLS version 3.5.12 and earlier is vulnerable to a NULL pointer
dereference while decoding a status response TLS extension with valid
contents. This could lead to a crash of the GnuTLS server application.
