 Problem Description:

 Updated gnutls packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 It was discovered that GnuTLS did not correctly handle certain errors
 that could occur during the verification of an X.509 certificate,
 causing it to incorrectly report a successful verification. An attacker
 could use this flaw to create a specially crafted certificate that
 could be accepted by GnuTLS as valid for a site chosen by the attacker
 (CVE-2014-0092).
