CVE: CVE-2018-10844 , CVE-2018-10845 , CVE-2018-10846
The updated packages fix security vulnerabilities: It was found that the GnuTLS implementation of HMAC-SHA-256 and HMAC-SHA-384 was vulnerable to a Lucky thirteen style attack. Remote attackers could use this flaw to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext-recovery attacks via statistical analysis of timing data using crafted packets (CVE-2018-10844, CVE-2018-10845). A cache-based side channel in GnuTLS implementation that leads to plain text recovery in cross-VM attack setting was found. An attacker could use a combination of "Just in Time" Prime+probe attack in combination with Lucky-13 attack to recover plain text using crafted packets (CVE-2018-10846).
