[slackware-security]  gnutls (SSA:2013-287-03)

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1,
and 13.37 to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnutls-2.10.5-i486-2_slack13.37.txz:  Rebuilt.
  [Updated to the correct version to fix fetching the "latest" from gnu.org]
  This update prevents a side-channel attack which may allow remote attackers
  to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext recovery attacks using
  statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets.
  Other minor security issues are patched as well.
  Thanks to mancha for backporting these patches.
  For more information, see:
