Ubuntu Users Can Calm Down About The GnuTLS Vulnerability. Ubuntu Has Fixed It.

My posts for the last two days have been about the recent GnuTLS vulnerability that I read about on ZDNet. In that post it says that the only versions not affected by the security flaw are 3.1.25, 3.2.15, and 3.3.3. In my first post I said you could try changing your update repositories to Ubuntu 14.10's repositories, and in my second post I showed you how to install from source.

Well, forget all that, because Ubuntu has patched the flaw for the following versions of Ubuntu:

  • 14.04 LTS
  • 13.10
  • 12.04 LTS
  • 10.04 LTS
They are saying that you will be fine if you just upgrade to libgnutls26 by running sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade. If you are not running one of these versions, I suggest you upgrade to one of them and get patched!

Sorry I didn't catch that earlier...
