Description

lib/x509/verify.c in GnuTLS before 3.1.22 and 3.2.x before 3.2.12 does not properly handle unspecified errors when verifying X.509 certificates from SSL servers, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a crafted certificate.

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gnutls
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gnutls-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gnutls-guile
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-gnutls-utils

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.
