    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.
