Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:215
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gnutls
Date : November 19, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated gnutls package fix security vulnerability:

An out-of-bounds memory write flaw was found in the way GnuTLS
parsed certain ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography) certificates or
certificate signing requests (CSR). A malicious user could create a
specially crafted ECC certificate or a certificate signing request
that, when processed by an application compiled against GnuTLS (for
example, certtool), could cause that application to crash or execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application
(CVE-2014-8564).
