    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2091
    Debian Bug     : 578663
    
    Thomas Klute discovered that in mod-gnutls, an Apache module providing
    SSL and TLS encryption with GnuTLS, a bug caused the server's client
    verify mode not to be considered at all, in case the directory's
    configuration was unset. Clients with invalid certificates were then
    able to leverage this flaw in order to get access to that directory.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5.10-1.1+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6-1.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mod-gnutls packages.
