Subject: CVE request: GNUTLS-SA-2015-3 double free in certificate DN decoding


GnuTLS released versions 3.4.4 and 3.3.17 that fix one security issue:

"Kurt Roeckx reported that decoding a specific certificate with very
long DistinguishedName (DN) entries leads to double free, which may
result to a denial of service. Since the DN decoding occurs in almost
all applications using certificates it is recommended to upgrade the
latest GnuTLS version fixing the issue. Recommendation: Upgrade to
GnuTLS 3.4.4, or 3.3.17."
