Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/gnutls-3.0.26-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  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.
