 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:171
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : gnutls
 Date    : May 30, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in gnutls:
 
 A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS decrypted TLS record packets when
 using CBC encryption. The number of pad bytes read form the packet
 was not checked against the cipher text size, resulting in an out of
 bounds read. This could cause a TLS client or server using GnuTLS to
 crash (CVE-2013-2116).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
