|Bugzilla:||1101932: CVE-2014-3466 gnutls: insufficient session id length check in _gnutls_read_server_hello (GNUTLS-SA-2014-3)|
A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed session IDs from ServerHello messages of the TLS/SSL handshake. A malicious server could use this flaw to send an excessively long session ID value, which would trigger a buffer overflow in a connecting TLS/SSL client application using GnuTLS, causing the client application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
