[slackware-security]  gnutls (SSA:2013-242-03)

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 14.0 and -current to fix a
security issue.

Sorry about having to reissue this one -- I pulled it from ftp.gnu.org not
realizing that the latest version there was actually months out of date.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnutls-3.0.31-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  [Updated to the correct version to fix fetching the "latest" from gnu.org]
  This update prevents a side-channel attack which may allow remote attackers
  to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext recovery attacks using
  statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-1619
  (* Security fix *)
