    Package        : gnutls26
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0282 CVE-2015-0294
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuTLS, a library
    implementing the TLS and SSL protocols. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2015-0282
    
        GnuTLS does not verify the RSA PKCS #1 signature algorithm to match
        the signature algorithm in the certificate, leading to a potential
        downgrade to a disallowed algorithm without detecting it.
    
    CVE-2015-0294
    
        It was reported that GnuTLS does not check whether the two signature
        algorithms match on certificate import.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.12.20-8+deb7u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnutls26 packages.
