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-2009-1416 bad DSA key problem.
 *
 * Build it using:
 *
 *  gcc -o cve-2009-1416 cve-2009-1416.c -lgnutls
 *
 * If your gnutls library is OK then running it will print 'success!'.
 *
 * If your gnutls library is buggy then running it will print 'buggy'.
