Description

lib/gnutls_pk.c in libgnutls in GnuTLS 2.5.0 through 2.6.5 generates RSA keys stored in DSA structures, instead of the intended DSA keys, which might allow remote attackers to spoof signatures on certificates or have unspecified other impact by leveraging an invalid DSA key.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-net-libs-gnutls

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
