Package        : gnutls26
Vulnerability  : certificate verification flaw
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-1959

Suman Jana reported that GnuTLS, deviating from the documented behavior,
considers a version 1 intermediate certificate as a CA certificate by
default.

The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by this problem as
X.509 version 1 trusted CA certificates are not allowed by default.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.12.20-8.

For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.12.23-12.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnutls26 packages.
