    Package        : gnutls11
    Vulnerability  : cryptographic weakness
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4790
    
    Daniel Bleichenbacher discovered a flaw in GNU TLS cryptographic package
    that could allow an attacker to generate a forged signature that GNU TLS
    will accept as valid.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.16-13.2sarge2.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) does no longer contain gnutls11, for
    gnutls13 this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your GNU TLS package.
