Security Researchers Discover New SSL Flaw

Security firm Codenomicon has found a new Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) flaw in the GnuTLS open-source cryptographic library. Codenomicon rose to notoriety in April as the security firm that found and branded the Heartbleed flaw in the open-source OpenSSL cryptographic library.

GnuTLS is not as widely deployed as OpenSSL, but it is part of many leading Linux distributions, including Red Hat.
