Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:166
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gnutls
Date : September 19, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

verify.c in GnuTLS before 1.4.4, when using an RSA key with exponent 3,
does not properly handle excess data in the digestAlgorithm.parameters
field when generating a hash, which allows remote attackers to forge a
PKCS #1 v1.5 signature that is signed by that RSA key and prevents
GnuTLS from correctly verifying X.509 and other certificates that use
PKCS, a variant of CVE-2006-4339.

The provided packages have been patched to correct this issues.
