GnuTLS is prone to multiple remote vulnerabilities:

- A remote code-execution vulnerability
- A denial-of-service vulnerability
- A signature-generation vulnerability
- A signature-verification vulnerability

An attacker can exploit these issues to potentially execute arbitrary code, trigger denial-of-service conditions, carry out attacks against data signed with weak signatures, and cause clients to accept expired or invalid certificates from servers.

Versions prior to GnuTLS 2.6.6 are vulnerable. 

/*
 * Small code to reproduce the CVE-2009-1415 double-free problem.
 *
 * Build it using:
 *
 *  gcc -o cve-2009-1415 cve-2009-1415.c -lgnutls
 *
 * If your gnutls library is OK then running it will just print 'success!'.
 *
 * If your gnutls library is buggy, then running it will crash like this:
 *
 * ** glibc detected *** ./cve-2009-1415: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0xb7f80a9c ***
 * ======= Backtrace: =========
 * ...
