    and vice versa, by sending TLS records encrypted with a block cipher

    The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected because the
    security fix that introduced this vulnerability was not applied to it.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.12.20-7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.12.23-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnutls26 packages.
