Description

A flaw was found in GnuTLS. The Minerva attack is a cryptographic vulnerability that exploits deterministic behavior in systems like GnuTLS, leading to side-channel leaks. In specific scenarios, such as when using the GNUTLS_PRIVKEY_FLAG_REPRODUCIBLE flag, it can result in a noticeable step in nonce size from 513 to 512 bits, exposing a potential timing side-channel.

  • alma-upgrade-gnutls
  • alma-upgrade-gnutls-c++
  • alma-upgrade-gnutls-dane
  • alma-upgrade-gnutls-devel
  • alma-upgrade-gnutls-utils
